Dance Improvisations

by Joyce Morgenroth, Dance Improvisations Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Dance Improvisations books, Dance Improvisations is a book for teachers of dance and acting, choreographers, directors, and dance therapists. Systematically offering a complete range of ways to explore dance, it can be used as a syllabus or as a reference for groups of all ages and all levels of experience. The first chapter in Dance Improvisations introduces ways for a group to practice working together and for the dancers to gain an effective awareness of each other. These preliminaries are followed by a body of improvisational problems, organized into three main areas: Space, Time, and Movement Invention. Each area is presented as a series of topics. Each topic progresses from individual exploration to more formally structured group improvisations, with emphasis on learning to work as a group toward common structural goals. This book is the first in its field to go beyond the pursuit of physical inventiveness to nurture the development of structural intuition. Joyce Morgenroth has succeeded in presenting improvisation in a way that is rational and methodical as well as inventive and personal - in the conviction that improvisation at its best is comprised of both form and fancy.

Taken By Surprise

by Ann Cooper Albright, Taken By Surprise Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Taken By Surprise books, First comprehensive overview of improvisation in dance. This collection of classic and new writings on dance improvisation brings together 21 essays by prominent dancers, scholars and historians. Until now, discussion of improvisation in dance has focused mainly on the postmodern form known as contact improv. Taken by Surprise reflects the development of improvisation as a compositional and performance mode in a wide variety of dance contexts, including dance traditions from around the globe, such as Yoruban masked dance, Indian Bharatanatyam and flamenco. The book also includes a thoughtful look at computer-aided choreography, a discussion of recent innovations in tap dancing and a section on improvisation in everyday life. Combining primary sources with critical analysis, Taken by Surprise will serve as an indispensible companion to studio work in improvisation, and a much-needed supplement to twentieth century dance histories.

The Moment Of Movement

by Lynne Anne Blom, The Moment Of Movement Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Moment Of Movement books, Dance improvisation, the intriguing phenomenon of the creative process alive in the moving body, exists powerfully, sublimely - lending insight, solving problems, allowing moments of transcendence, diversion, and delight. Flourishing especially since the postmodern movement of the 1960s, it has come into its own in the performing arts. While there are many books containing ideas for developing improvisations, few have tackled the difficult questions: “What is dance improvisation?” “How does it work?” or “What is its body of knowledge?” The Moment of Movement goes beyond lists of improvisations and into the heart of improvising. As in their previous book, The Intimate Act of Choreography, the authors pursue both the philosophical and the practical. They begin by examining the creative process as it applies to movement and especially the kinesthetic way in which the body knows and uses movement. They answer the often unstated and pertinent questions of the novice; investigate the particular skills and traits needed by the leader; consider ways of working with specific populations; and provide challenging material for advanced movers. They discuss the use of music, and the specific situation of improvisation in performance. For leaders who want to design their own improvisations, they trace the evolution of an idea into an actual content and structure. They also address the controversial issue of the legitimacy of improvisation in an academic curriculum. A final chapter presents hundreds of improvs and improv ideas, grouped into units and cross-referenced. The Moment of Movement is not tied to any one point of view. The authors’ presentation of a broad range of material is flexible enough for use by choreographers, directors, educators, and therapists. In its perceptive investigation of the experiential and conceptual aspects of dance improvisation, this book articulates the ephemeral.

Tanzimprovisation

by Friederike Lampert, Tanzimprovisation Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Tanzimprovisation books, Dieses Buch beschreibt den Wandel des Choreographie-Begriffs, der sich durch die Improvisationspraxis im künstlerischen Tanz des 20. Jahrhunderts vollzogen hat. Improvisatorische Verfahren kennzeichnen die Arbeiten von zeitgenössischen Choreographen, die die Ästhetik des Tanzes am Ende des 20. Jahrhunderts entscheidend prägen, wie etwa Trisha Brown, Steve Paxton, William Forsythe, Amanda Miller oder Jonathan Burrows, um nur wenige zu nennen. Zentrale Fragestellung der Untersuchung ist dabei nicht nur, wie im Laufe des 20. Jahrhunderts mit Improvisation im Tanz umgegangen wird, sondern vor allem, wie die Formen in einer Improvisation entstehen und welche Strukturen sich für die Formen verantwortlich zeigen. Ziel der Studie ist es, zum einen die Praxis und den Begriff der künstlerischen Tanzimprovisation auszudifferenzieren und zum anderen die Formenentstehung der Improvisation aufzudecken. Das Buch leistet damit einen Beitrag zur wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnis in Tanzforschung und Tanzpädagogik.
