Contemporary Dance Workshop, Summer 2018. Intensive Workshop.
TIME AND SPACE - BASIC ELEMENTS OF DANCE COMPOSITION

We dance in space and time

A dancer's body moves through space and is moved by space. Any kind of spatial decision, may it be the dancer's or choreographer's, can therefore express a particular ideology or support a certain choreographic intention.

Dancers interact with space in many ways. They may stay in one place or they may travel from one place to another. They may alter the direction, size, and pathways of their movements. They may engage with different spatial levels (high-middle-low) and different planes: frontal, vertical (up-down), horizontal (side-side) or sagittal (front-back). Speed, rhythm, tempo and acceleration/deceleration influence and transform our perception of the space we are moving through.

We dance in space and time.

A space that becomes alive with movement, that is thought and defined through movement.

Contents. Contemporary Dance Workshop, Summer 2018. Intensive Workshop.

    SPACE

  • Space and matter: full and empty.
  • Using space to align and position our actions and moves.
  • While travelling through space, learn to control changes in direction and tempo.
  • Study volumes; a term which in Latin meant "any rolled up, coiled up object or something that turns around, rolls around".
  • Symmetry as a means to hide, asymmetry as a means to reveal personal emotions.
  • Equidistant position of dancers in a choreography.
  • Spirals, curves, spheres.
  • Relationship between the exterior space and the interior body space.
  • Dance composition.
  • TIME

  • How to hear the beat by counting music; this will allow you to give a personal musical interpretation to any movement.
  • The strict order in a choreography. The importance of what comes first and what comes after, of who is in front and who is behind.
  • The different speeds of a movement.
  • Simultaneity in movement and the creation of a CHOREOGRAPHY: its expressive power.
  • The circle and the line as an interpretation of circular or linear time.
