KDB102 Dance Performance 2: Dance Histories

Unit synopsis

This is the second in a suite of four units that fosters and continues the development of the professional performing artist. This unit provides the opportunity for you to work with a choreographer and/or replication from video and/or other processes, with guidance from a rehearsal director leading to a performance. To enhance your understanding of the creative practice, the unit equips you with dance history methodologies. This unit builds upon Performance 1, and addresses dance history. The performer uses dance history to contextualise and enrich their current experience of choreographic and performance practice. In this unit you will explore the historical legacies that have influenced the choreographic work you are learning.
