Practical classes in contemporary dance technique will focus on developing eclectic movement language, idiosyncratic interpretation of modern and contemporary dance forms, and increasingly dynamic physicality. Workshops in choreography will address the development of choreographic craft, movement invention and the solo form, and students will develop skills in refining their own movement languages and choreographic forms. Readings in dance history and theory will contextualise contemporary dance techniques and choreographic work in terms of a critical analysis of the history of twentieth century modern dance in Europe, America and Australia, and the modernist meta-narratives of dance inherent in this history.
