This unit aims to introduce students to the aesthetic and physical challenges of techniques and choreography in contemporary dance art. The subject combines classes in contemporary dance technique with classes in dance composition. Technique classes, while physically and technically challenging are designed to cater to a broad range of dance backgrounds with the aim of giving students an embodied understanding of key physical principles of contemporary dance. A composition seminar will present and discuss a range of works from the modern, post-modern and contemporary dance repertoire. Students will also begin to engage with the philosophical and social issues underpinning contemporary dance practices through specific readings and discussion.
