The Somatics of Music

Goal: Learn to find specific musical devices to inform your movement improvisations in a methodical way.

In this class, dancers will strengthen their ability to listen to music for its components, rather than its overall mood. The group will dance through improvisational scores informed directly by specific musical devices (assigned by nico). The devices will be discussed and explored through systematic warm-up, improvisations in place, improvisations across space, and culminating group score. We will identify/study various musical composition devices, modularity, repetition, commitment to motif, and active listening. We will relate music to floor patterns, specific locations of the body, movement quality, and phrasing. We will sweat. We will smile. We will jam it out.
