Movement In Question

DANCE 318S

This writing-intensive seminar casts students as a research team engaging in multiple ways with the interdisciplinary field of critical dance studies. Students read and analyze foundational texts and theories, develop capacity to interpretively analyze movement, and practically engage in embodied activities that make gaps between textual representation and embodiment visible. This holistic approach throws movement into question and centralizes dance as a critical way of making the social world. Final Research Projects include conventional academic papers or choreographed performances that engage issues raised in the course. Zero dance experience required. All physical abilities welcomed.
