Based on the knowledge and experience of the improvisation and composition course in the first year, students will be able to develop in-depth skills, knowledge and understanding of key elements in choreography and what characterizes the craftsman in choreographic work. Through experience and experimentation with forming a concept, an idea, and movement material for choreography, the student gains insight into herself/himself as a dance artist, and develops his own choreographic voice. The course will be divided into three modules: The first will be a solo work to reconsider the idea of body in performance and in relation to postmodern perception of autobiography/self portrait. The second will be a small group work to consider a form of aesthetic in dance performances; getting glimpses into a few of different choreographic aesthetics\genres and different choreographers and their practice. As well a glimpse onto a number of current issues in dance. The third will be a work towards the final course presentation, which will explore the idea of process into product work, or else process as product: considering collaboration, scenography, music, dramaturgy, etc. In over all the students will be encouraged to develop an autonomy and independency in their learning process, i.e. in their creative processes, finding resources, collaborators and influences. The course ends with a student presentation - each student creates her/his own choreography.
