What is Structure? The Beginning of a Dance

December 6, 2010 Leave a comment

In the beginning of Group Forms, an important question was raised – what is structure? Or an even better question: how do I interpret the word structure as a choreographer? To begin locating a response to that question we were asked to generate a choreographic manifesto. Below are some points in which I expressed:

The dancer is human.

The music is not secondary.

Develop work that reflects how bodies function or operate in society.

With my manifesto in mind, I began working on a new choreographic process that was heavily invested in the notion of “process” to determine/discover my tendencies as a choreographer.
