Before The Act : Motion Impulse And Movement Imagination.
"This years DanceLines are directed towards choreographers that comes from a classical background and primarily works in a classical language.Where former years discussions have evolved around different compositional strategies especially structure and the relation between dance and music ; this years course is addressing a group of creators for whom structure and musical form is deeply imbedded in the their classical training- is second nature.
The course will as its starting point focus on the the creative impulse in its raw state, before it takes form or requires a structure, the idea of an 'impulse' , the impulse to move before we move. What is there before preconceived ideas of form, shape , syllabus or codified steps . How do we “think” movement, how do we visualise motion without something moving, can we imagine dance without a moving body. Does such a thing as a movement imagination exist ."
