Particularly of interest to teachers and students studying dance at GCSE / A Level or BTEC level
Lucy Moewlyn-Hughes, DTP’s Education Consultant has worked with Tim Rushton [Artistic Director / Choreographer], the dancers and creative collaborators of Danish Dance Theatre to create a comprehensive and accessible resource guide with interviews, background information and suggestions for creative movement tasks.
Due the style of the company’s work, this will be a great introduction to dance as the three pieces provide a huge bank of practical material from which students can extract / copy ideas. There is plenty of scope to write a section breakdown (using syllabus criteria below) on each piece discussing:
- Movement content
- Visual setting
- Auditory setting
The last two are particularly relevant as the works use very arresting lighting designs and there is a live music element for CaDance.
