Subject Area: Dance Studies
This course can also be studied in the following specialisation: Music Studies

This studio-based course is relevant for students in Music and Dance. Creative Practice Across Music and Dance introduces students to historical and practical aspects of the relationship of music and dance by examining a number of key collaborations. The case studies will include Western choreographers and composers, along with non-Western forms such as Indian classical dance and Japanese Butoh, which rely on highly formalised interactions between musician and dancer. Through this culturally diverse approach, students will achieve an understanding of the history and potential of creative work emerging from cross-art form collaborations. The studio-workshop will be used to experiment with ideas presented in the lectures, leading to the development of original works for dancer(s) and newly composed music. For this task, students will be organised into small groups based on the numbers from each of discipline.

This is a compulsory core subject for all students completing a Dance Major or Minor.
