EVERY ROOM A DANCE

A Research in Spatial Relations of Movement and Representation Techniques


THE PROCESS:

• perform an improvised dance in an unconventional space. i.e. quarantined space • film the dance • record journal entry after movement improv, commenting on movement inspirations occurring during stream of consciousness movement i.e. shapes, patterns, feelings, etc. • explore digital mapping techniques

THE PREMISE:

• explore how space influences creative movement practices • investigate hybrid representational techniques for mapping movement
