Choreography 3

Choreography 3 

Thank you to Miss Boux for allowing me to use her photographs in this picture :-)

At the basis of choreography are sense impressions, not so much movement "actuel" but the emotional and imaginative effect that body motion and form (styling) have upon the viewer and participator. As a dancer myself I have observed 2 things,
firstly; a dancer has to concentrate on numerous things at once. Essentially dance is an improvisation, regardless of whether it is choreographed or not. The aim of a dancer is to give the impression that movement flows. However, concerns such as timing and improvisation (in free-style) and awareness of time and space regarding other performers, have to become automatic. It is this automatic nature of performance that acheives flow, or improvisation. This runs against the elitism that is so often found in dance and (particularly) dance establishments, that value athleticism over creativity, youth over experience and (literally) the writing of choreography over improvisation and (at times) the dance its self. Please refer to Derrida's "Ecriture" for further reading of the importance of the written word (or music notation, numbers, choreographic symbols) in Western society.

Secondly;
A dancer is constantly observing the movements of fellow performers from the corner of his/her eye. the architecture of this picture explores this idea. Dance is highly intuitive and the body awareness relating to other performers is "sensed" more than it is observed through the usual senses; touch, sight, etc. One must intuit the intention of other dancers which leads to an array of potential "realities" that may occur. Even dance that is strictly choreographed is invariably open to interpretation. I have tried to represent the visual effect of watching other dancers, literally from the corner of your eye! Also the potential for a multitude of possible movements that may occur while one dancer is observing and sensing others. The "deconstructionist" elements of the image represent the intellectual elements of dance, the assimilation of ideas and their expression through decision making. Also the organising of ideas and their fruition in palpable movements.

Of course, the truth is that every dancer is a choreographer, whether dancers make up routines for fun, in their spare time or through learning choreography and intepreting it subjectively. However, whether a dancer is permitted to become a choreographer depends much more on certificates than ability. It is something that many can do, or learn to do but only a few will ever be given the chance.
