Repertory and Performance: Sissy Vop Breakdown

DANC 378
Spring 2017
Section: 01  
This course may be repeated for credit.
Course Cluster: Queer Studies

In this course, we will engage in intensive embodied research through a collection of training counter rituals aimed at releasing enculturated oppressions in the body. Going to the edge of our physical limits is important for this release and we will enter through a combination of rigor, rhythm, and recuperative practices. We will "pump" various rooms (dance studio, club, and grassy knoll) to sense how place/space affects our research materials.

Through training in (e)feminized movement modalities, sparring scores, solo states, and group provocations, we will address the body and performance space as a site for transgression, transcendence, and transformation. This course is part of the Creative Campus Initiative. (http://www.wesleyan.edu/creativecampus).
