DANCE WRITE NOW!
21-22 TERM 2 LEVEL 5 PROJECT
‘Writing, like dancing, is one of the arts available to people who have nothing. “For ten and sixpence,” advises Virginia Woolf, “one can buy paper enough to write all the plays of Shakespeare.” The only absolutely necessary equipment in dance is your own body.’
– Zadie Smith
BORDER CROSSINGS is a term long project that aims to develop your skills in modes of dance writing. You will be introduced to a number of ways dance and writing come together. You will use writing as a creative and critical way to explore dance. We will look at dance critique, reflective writing, use of text in dance and more. During the term, you will complete a number of tasks which you will upload to a final portfolio.
