Boosting My Creative Process in Choreography: Analyzing Related Work, Integrating Methods of Select Master Choreographers, Creating a Dance
MetadataShow full item record
During a ten week period at the University of Oregon I created a sociopolitically based dance work, The Big Red Button. I researched theories about creativity. I researched a selection of master choreographers in order to integrate their methods of creation with my own. Finally, I created a dance piece with students from the University of Oregon which was shared with the public in a live performance. In this document I discuss this exploration into my creative process in dance with the intention of understanding more about it, expending upon what I already posses as a choreographer, and attempting to find out if the creative process can be enriched, resulting in new methods, new products, and new perspectives on creating a dance work.
