Articulate your work – workshop led by Konstantina Skalionta
At our fifth professional development meeting Konstantina lead a workshop in which the participants worked on articulating their dance work and artistic vision in writing.
As dance artists we speak through the body, movement and staging and we may find it difficult at times to translate our artistic vision into written language.
Konstantina and Lucia prepared a worksheet that you can download here and work on in your own time if you weren’t able to attend. We recommend you get together with another choreographer, because it’s helpful to have to speak in simple ways and to hear key words back from your partner. The worksheet contains exercises to help you prepare your artistic statement.
We also recommend this resource by ArtBusiness.com: http://www.artbusiness.com/artstate.html
Please leave any questions, comments and advice you have for others below!
Happy creating and producing your work!
