Is there a grammar for duo/group Dance?
(No location given)
Hi, thanks for creating a very informative website. I'm most interested in duo or group dance, is there an established set of terms used to describe the choreographic relationships between dancers? I did some research and found:
The Elements of Dance
It uses Body, Action, Space, Time, Energy. Those are good but seem a bit more fitted to solo dance. The chart does address relationships under Space and Time. I'm wondering if there is a Dance Theory that does a similar thing for all elements, such as Actions in relation to others' Actions (maybe something like Approach and Withdrawal?) Can you point me to a Dance Theory article or book that would address this?
