DANC 474 - History of Postmodern Choreography and Practice


Explores postmodern dance (1960-present) from theoretical and practical perspectives. Theoretical and historical readings from dance, performance, and cultural studies on postmodern dance combine with the application and investigation of choreographic theories in the dance studio. As the dancing draws on an everyday or pedestrian movement vocabulary, no prior dance experience is necessary. This course covers artists such as Yvonne Rainer, Trisha Brown, David Gordon, and Bill T. Jones. The postmodern dance aesthetic is interdisciplinary in nature: choreographers frequently collaborate with artists from other disciplines, such as music, visual arts, and theater. This course is appropriate for students interested in intellectual and experiential artistic practices.
