Abstract

As a choreographer, I find my voice through dance. I look to tell stories as clearly as possible so audiences can watch my narrative. This got me thinking, is it possible for two choreographers to create a piece through conversation? Essentially a back-and-forth dialogue that will end in a piece.

For this project my partner and I will be exploring just that. How two choreographers can develop a piece through a back-and-forth collaboration. Focusing on innovating methods of discussion and how that can influence our final work. This conversation element will be featured given the fact that my partner and I will be in different states while creating this work. We will use technology as means to connect at our distance and will develop the work separately until we reunite in April.

Choreography Conversations: Collaborating at a Distance
