This subject focuses upon the potential for interplay and dynamic dialogue between the building blocks of performance creation. Seminars and practical/studio-based classes provide interaction with other disciplines to develop communication and collaborative abilities and a familiarity with the approaches of other modalities within the processes of artistic composition. There is a focus upon design, light, viewing contexts and an exploration of generative processes used in performance creation (sound design/composition, animation techniques, improvisational strategies). Laboratory classes allow students to explore and develop concepts together, to experiment, and become familiar with a range of methods, materials and possible solutions. A focus on dance on screen provides an introduction to dance on screen works of the 20th and 21 century with practical and theoretical investigations into the incorporation of space and design in the creation of dance screen work. Students are mentored through the development and realisation of a short dance on screen work building practical skills and experience of the processes and elements required, including roles & responsibilities, camera techniques, editing software, storyboard, phrasing using dance and the camera.
Intended learning outcomes
be able to conceive and create choreographic/ performance material ‘for the camera’: movement material manipulated specifically for the boundaries and possibilities of the camera and editing processes.
On completing this subject students will have:
- the ability to work in other modalities and appreciate their potentials;
- the ability to work as a team in the creation and organization of aesthetic material;
- the capacity to solve problems;
- the capacity for critical thinking and the evaluation of artistic materials;
- the capacity to identify and use the principles of another modality in the creation of one’s own work.
