  • Overview

    Course Content:

    This module is designed to take students through the process of making a dance
    production, from initial conception to final performance. The focus of the module is to
    give students the experience of being in a ?company? and of working closely with a
    professional choreographer.

    In the early part of the module, lectures focus on the making/devising process of the
    lecturer/guest choreographer and the practical processes of creating a production,
    researching subject matter, setting movement material and improvising with movement
    ideas.

    Thereafter, groups will work with their choreographer both in class time and during independent study hours to create, rehearse and produce a full-scale dance-based
    production. Performances will take place in a theatre setting and will be open to the
    wider university and public.

    Teaching:
    Teaching strategies will depend on the individual choreographers making the work, but
    initially might include: learning movement phrases, improvisation to create movement
    material, researching different choreographic methods, responding to tasks and
    improvising with ideas, words or music.

    Assessment:
    ? Rehearsal period/ devising period continual assessment (50%)
    ? Performance (30%)
    ? Reflective Essay (20%)
