Content description
Analyse how choreographers use elements of dance and production elements to communicate intent
  1. deconstructing sections of a dance, for example identifying and describing recurring movement/s within sequences or the use of the elements of dance and production elements in a contemporary dance choreographed by an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander
  2. identifying and interpreting how interrelating elements, choreographic devices such as variation, contrast and transition and forms are used to communicate intent.
  3. presenting an informed opinion about a dance performance using descriptive, style-specific terminology, for example, identifying philosophical, ideological or political perspectives presented in the dance and considering how these perspectives affect the audience’s interpretation
  4. accessing and researching choreographers’ works through real or virtual performances to research choreographers’ intentions
