Poetry In Motion


Creative Group Study
Each group selects an idea for movement, develops and creates a brief dance study, and shares this study with the class.

Thursday May 7th
Each group will search for and select a haiku or poem; this will be the idea or catalyst for the creation of your group movement study.
Three examples of haiku (kindly provided by Dr. Hutchinson):

Old dark sleepy pool...
quick unexpected frog
goes plop!  Watersplash!

Lightning flash, crash...
waiting in the bamboo grove
see three dewdrops fall

Leaf falling on leaf
on piled-up leaves...
rain splashing
in pools
