December 29 - December 31, 2017
A Choreographic Mind with Susan Rethorst (choreographer, author, educator)
**Scholarships available--scroll down for details.
*DESCRIPTION*: Over three days participants examine in practice what
choreography is and does. Where does it come from? What is it for? What
are some ways to fuel one's work with one's questions? Participants will
reflect on the nature of movement and its communicative capacity and get
inside the making of work with specific regard to issues of continuity,
time, phrasing and sequence.
Participants are asked to show work frequently/constantly and to consider
what the nature of the material demands, including modes of
production/presentation. No previous dance experience required.
*In Susan’s words*:
I teach from the point of view that making is an endless quest with ever
shifting ground. I encourage an attitude of fueling work with one's
questions, not regarding plans or themes as prerequisites. I regard
teaching as a conversational mode; my exercises are proposals in action. I
am interested in giving students the ability to recognize and access states
necessary to making work; intuition, perception, cognition, interiority,
emotional distance, spontaneity, pleasure, will, reflection, humor.
