DANCE 1: Contemporary Modern I: Liquid Flow

Students in Liquid Flow will participate in a dance and movement class that teaches the fundamentals of dance technique and addresses the way we already dance through the world. By discovering our own movement signatures, and becoming aware of other people's dance, motion, and energy in space, we will transform the way we inhabit flow states, from the dance studio, into everyday life, and ultimately onto the stage. Accompanied by a live DJ, students will develop technique, articulation, flexibility, and grace, to gain freedom while dancing, and mine dance's potential for social transformation and connection. We will draw from various movement traditions and practices, including contemporary modern, ballet, lyrical, Tai chi and yoga, with opportunities to remix other styles. Designed for all levels, we welcome beginners, student movers from diverse dance traditions, athletes, and advanced dancers, who desire more fluidity in their lives.

DANCE 30: Contemporary Choreography: Chocolate Heads 'Garden After Dark' Performance Project (AFRICAAM 37)

The Chocolate Heads Movement Band will engage in an interdisciplinary project-based course to develop collaborative choreography and installation art with visual and musical components. How can we attune our senses to perceive the subtleties of our surroundings? How can we learn to perceive the magic hiding in plain sight? The Autumn '23-'24 project will make use of remixing strategies, deep listening practices, and outdoor exploration to animate these questions in a multisensorial performance piece. We will cultivate an imaginary garden full of wild, surprising, and mysterious entities. Taking inspiration from landscape architecture, textiles, lighting, and projection design, we will bring the outside world in to create a dance and performance ecology. The course will feature collaborations with guest scientists, artists, and somatic practitioners. Our garden is open to all forms of creative expression and all levels of experience; we invite dancers, movers, and emerging creators of all styles and backgrounds. WEEK 1: TU 9/26--Introduction to the Project & CHs Band; THU 9/28--1st Audition Workshop. Contact Aleta Hayes (ahayes1@stanford.edu) for more information.

DANCE 30S: Chocolate Heads Special Proj.: Interdisciplinary Movement Lab for Choreographers &Performance Makers

This course will be co-taught by two interdisciplinary dance and performance makers: Aleta Hayes, artistic director of the Chocolate Heads Movement Band, and JoAnna Mendl Shaw, visiting guest artist from NYC. Each student will explore choreographic strategies to create an original work by the end of the quarter. The choreographic perspectives offered will include: Hayes' collaborative making process, developed through The Chocolate Heads Movement Band, which draws upon a wide array of academic and physical disciplines to produce contemporary dance; and Mendl Shaw's interspecies lens, developed through The Equus Projects, which uses choreographic scoring to generate performance with dancers and horses. Mendl Shaw's Physical Listening honors our "embodied, physical intelligence" and seeks to enhance "our human capacity for multi-sensory awareness." At the end of the quarter, students will have the opportunity to audition to debut new works for the inaugural TAPS Young Choreographers Festival. We invite emerging creators and movement-makers from any and all performance backgrounds to take the course and bring their diverse styles into the choreographic space. All levels of experience are welcome. Contact Aleta Hayes (ahayes1@stanford.edu) for questions.

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. For questions please e-mail aketley@stanford.edu.
