Under the close guidance of Anne Gridley from the Nature Theater of Oklahoma, our group (Mustafa, Andrew, DV and myself) were tasked with creating a dance of six moves whose choreography was determined by chance of a six-sided die. Each step is a single count.
Each of the six moves we created were inspired by the wearable digital switches presented earlier in class. They are labeled in a some what literal way, generally after the motion or body part the switch employed.
The names are:
The dance as determined by rolling the die followed two simple rules:
- Each move must appear once
- No move can appear more than twice
Our dance became:
Brows, Elbows, Brows, Heels, HeadLeg, Chicken, Chicken, Elbows, Heels, Clap
Try it out…it’s as much fun as it is ridiculous looking.
