ENSEMBLE DANCER
SITE SPECIFIC PROJECT

Site-specific dance is defined as a performance that has been designed to exist in a certain place outside of the traditional stage. 

 

One of the first to explore site-specific dance was postmodernist choreographer Trisha Brown. who took dances to rooftops, vertical walls, rafts floating in a pond and a variety of other unconventional spaces.

 

Your assignment is to choreograph your own site-specific dance within the space you have during this quarantine. The solo must be at least 45 seconds and no longer than a minute.

 

Submit no later than May 30 to participate. All submissions will be included!

Please see the example below of a couple classmates' fantastic Site Specific solos!
