When creating choreography to a piece of music, you are in dialogue with that music. You bring your own unique artistry to the conversation, but the music contributes a lot, and on many different levels!
This workshop is intended for choreographers and dancers who would like to build their toolkit for working with music artistically. It won't turn you into a musician or make you proficient in music theory, but rather will open you up to hearing more of what makes up a piece of music and what it’s bringing to the table. We’ll also cover topics related to actually working with music and musicians that will be useful whether you’re communicating with collaborators or choosing recordings.
Tuesday, July 12, 6:00-9:00 pm: Rhythm, meter, and movement in time.
Wednesday, July 13, 6:00-9:00 pm: Pitch, harmony, key, and movement in space.
Thursday, July 14, 6:00-9:00 pm: Musical form (a.k.a. putting it all together), plus logistics and legalities.
Come to any or come to all three! You do not need to be able to read music.
