Content

In this capstone unit, students will research, practice, and utilise specific approaches to choreographic practice in their relation to 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 (2 credit points). Students will engage with different dance-making approaches with the aim of discovering what processes best suit their interests in choreography, and the particular circumstances 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 processes and assessing their relevance and application to the emerging aims of their group project. Assignments will be shown as informal presentations 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 at the end of the Trimester.
