CRAFTING & CONTEXTUALIZING
CHOREO - POEMS
First coined in 1975 by Poet / Playwright Ntozake Shange, a choreo - poem is a form of dramatic expression that combines poetic text and dance. This course is offered for dancer/choreographers seeking to generate text and writers seeking to incorporate movement into their work.
Artists can create new work or bring in one performance piece (5 min or less) that they would like to workshop. Through a series of prompts, we will explore the sonic and kinetic impulses that exist within the meta-narrative of the work and bring them to the surface.
