Analysis and experiments of creative translation in dance by Carolina Guerra (Uruguay)

Mar 15
March 14th & 15th, from 4 to 7 pm 
B222  Walgreen Drama Center
1226 Murfin
Ann Arbor, MI  48109-1212

The proposal of this practice is to create a space for reflection and analysis of the decisions and the mechanisms we use when thinking and creating materials for a piece or an improvisation in dance.
We will work on the perception of things and self perception, focusing  in how we describe or translate those perceptions. We will also train some tools for discovering and being aware of our own mechanisms for decision making during a creative process or movement research.

Some guiding questions will be:
What is my concept?
How can I describe what I'm observing?
How can I translate to another medium or language what interested me about something?
Why I choose this and not that?

We will use different strategies for analysis and different group dynamics to expand creative and collaborative possibilities.

Start Time: 3/14/2013 - 3/15/2013  4:00 PM
Location: B222 Walgreen Drama Center
