December 9, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

During class, we discussed  Tere O’Connor and Headlong Dance Theater’s  idea of choreographic intuition in relation to objectivity. As a result, a discussion about the good/bad paradigm erupted for myself. The material in which a choreographer generates and locates as “bad” can be indentifiable as “good” if presented through a different lens. By lens I’m meaning the manners in which choreographers manipulate material (spatial changes for example).

Within this class I became interested in the amount of time it takes for a choreographer to look at their work objectively. There has to be a moment within a process where that shift occurs and I’m curious that if the choreographer changes that point within their process, how would that effect there perspective on what is “good” and what is “bad”
