Scholars Day: April 10, 2013

The Collaborative Process--Switching Roles

Two presenters, a third year MFA candidate presents alongside the Costume Designer for the Department of Dance as they share their experience with a “reverse-collaboration”. Contrary to the traditional collaborative process within the field of dance performance, where typically the choreographer presents ideas for a fully conceived dance to the costume designer who then works to create attire suitable to their vision, these two work in the reverse. In this lecture-demonstration, Scholl begins by sharing her interest in how costumes inspired by historical garments have the ability to shape and restrict one’s movement while questioning past aesthetics; she exhibits her initial renderings and also discusses the many conversations they shared throughout their process. Kaplan then demonstrates the base-phrase for what would become the final piece, elaborating on the challenges of creating a dance based off of someone’s else’s vision. Finally their trio, Replacement is shown in its entirety.
