In Choreographic Process into Performance 2 students continue to study the elements of contemporary choreography: Body, Space, and Time through compositional workshops to develop their own choreographic ideas and also work towards a major performance project

The students continue to develop their practical and theoretical understanding of dance composition and choreography. The focus of creative compositional tasks is the study of the duet form, which is explored as a choreographic structure, and as an expressive form.

Students also engage in a creative development process with a guest choreographer in the first of a series of performance projects throughout the course, culminating in the performance of the work as part of the VCA Dance's November performance season. This is the first performance experience leading to a variety of unique opportunities, which facilitate embodied performance.

Intended learning outcomes

This subject will enable students to:
• understand the formal and creative components of contemporary choreography, and to use a range of choreographic strategies such as abstraction, manipulation, and motif and development with creativity and imagination;
• compose movement studies in response to creative tasks, individually and as part of a duo or group;
• collaboratively choreograph and perform a duet dance work with a partner within set parameters;
• demonstrate movement description skills, conceptual understanding and learning consolidated through physical exploration and experience of the content covered in practical classes through written work and in class discussions;
• work effectively in rehearsals including contribution to the making process and learning and maintaining new choreographic materials in preparation for performance;
• demonstrate the capacity to perform a new choreographic work in keeping with the choreographer's intention and style.

• create and organise aesthetic material;
