A Creative Legacy
MetadataShow full item record
The project has three components, my actual dance concert, “Layered Reactions: Response 1, Response 2, etc.” located at Progressive Galleries in downtown Lancaster, a process paper which discusses my creative research for choreography, performance, and planning of the concert, and a research paper, “A Creative Legacy,” that grounds my work in the philosophies and concepts of the Judson Dance Theater and their work from the 1960s. Through the creative work and research I realized I had been passed down a kind of curiosity from the Judsonites. It is an approach that questions assumptions about dance, movement, bodies, and space. They “democratized” many components of dance and pushed the boundaries of choreography, performance, and performance conventions; this concept of democratization is the focus of the paper. The Judsonites led the way to new territory for dance artists and have inspired other contemporary artists to push their own creative boundaries—like me.
