Writing About Dancing
DANC 107
Fall 2014
Section: 01  

Martha Graham said, "Movement never lies," while Min Tanaka states, "Choreography is fundamentally deceptive." Which choreographer is telling the truth? In this interdisciplinary arts course, we will focus on writing as a tool to examine how we see movement and watch dancing. By applying dance methodologies to creative writing exercises, we will hone our skills of observing movement through viewing dance, researching movement writing about it, and giving feedback on what is written.
