Density Study

In Susan Petry’s graduate composition course, we’ve been focusing on density/complexity in movement. We first created movements with clearly defined beginnings and endings and performed them in the compressed time limit of 10 seconds, which was a nearly impossible yet amusing task for most of us. From there, we added “inserts” between each of our movements, and then we added “inserts” in between our “inserts.”  This created an immediate effect of  creating complexity and allowing for a deeply embodied physicality in all of our studies.

We then continued to develop our studies in accordance with our own interests  and curiosities. Mine ended up taking on site-specific focus in a hallway at Sullivant Hall. I focused on developing an internal rhythm with forward motion while working with the restrictions of that particular space. You can watch my progression through this study below:
