Host: Shawl Anderson Dance Center

Description: This workshop series builds on the choreographic score workshop with deeper inquiry into how text-based poetry techniques inform the choreographic process. We will primarily focus on creating choreographic scores utilizing concrete poetry, erasure poetry, ekphrastic poetry, and cinépoetry with optional weekly assignments that provide students an opportunity to invest in personal creative research. Register here
