Collaboration in the Arts
Collaboration in the Arts: The Creative Process Continues
Taking the experience and knowledge produced in ARDV 0116, The Creative Process, as our starting place, we will collaborate to build more extended, complex, multi-media projects- including performances, installations, and hybrid works. We will research artistic collaboration, that slippery creative relationship with models in every variety of art production, to inspire our hands-on investigations and put them into historical and cultural context. Readings will come from recent literature on collaboration in the arts. Journals, short research papers/presentations, and daily in-class experimentation will culminate in substantial final projects that are original, collaborative, and unpredictable. (ARDV 0116, ARDV 0117, or equivalent, or by approval)

Community Dialogue/Arts
Community Dialogue Through the Arts
In this course students will learn both the theory and the practice of community dialogue through the arts. We will study the roles of community organizers, activists, artists, community members, performers, and scholars in the field of community engagement, such as The Liz Lerman Dance Exchange, Urban Bush Women, Crossroads Theatre, and Jan Cohen-Cruz of Imagining America. Students will collaborate to design, plan, implement, and document a community engagement project aimed at making tangible change that continues after the course is completed. Readings will be drawn from Radical Street Performance, Visions of Culture, and Imagining America Publications. This course counts as an elective towards the Dance major.

Storytelling Through Dance
Interdisciplinary Storytelling: Silent and Spoken, Movement and Stillness
Calling dancers, poets, spoken word artists, singers, musicians, and storytellers!  Come together to share, create, and collaborate in an interdisciplinary exploration of abstract and narrative storytelling. Through improvisation and structure, we will create stories through body and voice. We will look at, create, tell, and share our personal stories as well as others'.  In a supportive environment we will share our stories through movement and narrative, allowing and encouraging participants to build bridges between each other and contribute to the growth of community. Readings, films, journal writing, and performance will be an integral part of this course.
