"The way you move affects the way you think about movement." Jonathan Burrows



Exploring relationship of body and site, collaboration and the choreographic process, participants created site-specific dances at (or near) the Music Pagoda in Prospect Park. Groups of 2 or more made decisions about the beats/measure, location and boundary for their dance and took turns choreographing movements. Pictured here are still images from the final performance. Each group began their dance at the same time and the videographer made a 360 degree recording. The project was inspired by an exercise in Jonathan Burrows' workshop Writing Dance at Movement Research (2011).
