dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to experientially investigate the choreographic process of the dance artist Pina Bausch. This embodied exploration led to the creation of a new theatrical work, Wunderkammer, in which I was able to explore, understand, and articulate my interpretation of Pina Bausch's creative process. I worked collaboratively for eight months with seven dancers, exploring movement inspired by the personal stories, bodies, and experiences of each individual. I then crafted this material into a non-linear collage exploring and challenging the boundaries of performance, dance, theater, and life itself. The greatest impact of this process was the autonomy the individuals had in co-creating their roles. I noted deep connections, true ownership of the roles, and heightened performances from each dancer. The openness and vulnerability of Bausch's process allowed me to take risks, and to expand my capabilities in collaboration, choreography, and art making.en_US
