Choreography is the organization of our bodies in space and in time. Each choreographic practice is unique and can originate from an infinite number of inquiries of imagination, culture, place, body, structure, gender and much more. To be coherent, a choreographer must be knowledgeable of the practical, theoretical, aesthetic and historical continua that they are part of. Additionally, a choreographer must realize their own voice and vision through experimentation, practice and choice.
In this workshop, we will practice a variety of creative methods and compositional strategies. Through discussions, exercises of making and viewing, participants will also develop skills to formulate critical responses to the dance they see, create, and share with the participants. We will be making material on ourselves and each other.

Topics that will be introduced and developed include:
— Movement: actions and vocabulary
— The use of space
— Thematic development, structure and composition
— Relationships between bodies
— Aesthetics
— Analysis
— Organization/planning
— Creating meaning
— An open and ongoing conversation on current choreographic practices and their intersection with the socio/political
