DANCE 27: Faculty Choreography

This project, a new work for 7-9 dancers, investigates dynamic relationships across time and space, with a special interest in movement that folds and unfolds, wraps inward and spools outward. Spatial trajectories and awareness of shifting spatial relationships are central to the work. Imagery will be drawn from natural phenomenon. The movement material is exceptionally lush, dense and detailed, including a lot of rolling floor work, swift changes of direction and level, weight-bearing and carrying, ensemble work and interchangeable partnering. The dance is episodic, irregular in shape. Dancers will join in the process of building material from base phrases. Many rehearsals will be in silence, so dancers will need to be especially alert to the breath phrasing and rhythmic content of the movement material. Indeterminacy procedures will be used to organize the progression and sections of the work. Dancers of all backgrounds welcome; physical assertion and commitment highly valued. Composer Dohi Moon will create an original score for the work; TAPS theater designers will create scenic elements, costumes, lighting. Performance will be on Memorial Auditorium stage. Performance dates: May 26, 27. Dancers are expected to attend all dance rehearsals and technical rehearsals leading to performance. Interested dancers should contact the choreographer by email. nnCasting by both audition and invitation. Once cast, dancers may sign up for unit credit.

DANCE 50: Contemporary Choreography

Each day Ketley will develop a new phrase of choreography with the students and use this as the platform for investigation. Consistent lines of inquiry include; sculpting with the body as an emotional, instinctual, and graphic landscape, how the fracturing and the complication of strands of information can feel generative of new ways of moving, discussions around how our use of time is directly correlated to our sense of presence, and the multitude of physical colors available to each of us as artists as we expand our curiosity about movement. Classes will be very physical, trusting that much of our knowledge is contained in the body. The culmination of the class will be performing in the joint faculty Dance Concert on the Memorial Auditorium stage. nnnParticipants in the class will be chosen by audition and invitation. For questions please e-mail aketley@stanford.edu.
