Ensemble Thinking in Dance ImprovisationTechniques that entice collective thinking and spontaneous composition in dance improvisation are explored in the context of conference calls. The question is how can dancers connect in the zoom room with other dancers to spontaneously co-create meaningful group composition that reflects our current situation. Choreographic concepts such as frame, rhythm, originating idea and motif, shape, level, and tone will be explored through the lens of the Zoom room.
