DanceLines 2006 Structure: Inside-out/Outside-in

Royal Opera House Covent Garden , July 2006

Project Brief

Structure: Inside-out/Outside-in

"This years course is called 'Structure - inside-out/outside-in'. Unlike in architecture and visual arts where structure both refers to visible and even tactile surface as well as foundation and ground, in dance structure is only 'sensed' , it is invisible, neither solid nor tangible. In dance ( as in music, film and performed drama) the structural element disappear into the past at the same rate as the piece reveals itself.

Dance has for as long as it has been a theatrical artform borrowed formal and structural prodedures from especially music and drama. We will look at these and influences from other artforms, but we will also look at structure from a more foundmental point of view : our brains ability and inclination to structure in time, creating seqences and patterns of events, anticipating frequency of occurences."
