In this capstone unit, students will research, practice, and utilise specific approaches to choreographic practice that have been defined by significant dancer-choreographers in the contemporary dance field. These approaches to choreographic practice will enable students to develop processes and content towards the creation of the live performance of a major choreographic group work in trimester 2 in the companion unit ACD310. Students will study these techniques with the aim of discovering what processes best suit their interests in choreography, and will test how they can utilise these techniques from the unique positions of their own cultures, contexts, experiences, capacities and bodies. A series of assignments will give students practical experience in creating from within the given choreographic process and to assess its relevance and application to them. Assignments will be shown as informal presentations to invited audiences or in class. During and towards the end of this unit groups will be established and will develop ideas and establish approaches towards the major choreographic project that will be created and performed in the unit ACD310. This proposal will be formally presented in class before the end of the Trimester.
