Ideas I drew from a morning Muck at Studio Current

– Emotion and performance: Inside-Out vs Outside-In. In theatre we have clear parallel examples of the two approaches: Clown and commedia are largely outside-in forms. Stanislavski and Meisner acting technique are all about inside-out.

– Do choreographers and dancers have a fear of narrative?

– Can abstraction exist within narrative?

– Choreographers and dancers want to be understood, yet often avoid narratives in their work… even though narratives and their context are where human understanding comes from.

– Can choreography itself be a narrative?

– What if in your work you sought the emotional reaction?

– Context creates emotion.

– What happens if you seek disorientation?

– What happens to your dance if it does have a narrative?
