Course Description

DNC 298
Dance Theater in Traditional and Contemporary Performance
Fall

Dance Theater provides an intellectual, artistic, and somatic understanding of Western theater from its origins in ritual practice to its development as an interdisciplinary art form with fluid and elastic boundaries. We begin by examining the form's essential components, such as time, space, voice, and the body's basic expressive acts, and then explore the ways in which these elements are utilized for aesthetic, political, social, ritualistic, or religious ends. Studio practice is a component of every class.
