DANC 347 Artist Collaborative: Call for Applications

1 Unit of Spring 2024 Tuition — February 9 – 18, 2024

Program Description

During this course, students will explore cross-disciplinary artistic inspiration and collaboration, primarily in music/sound and dance/choreography. Students will create initial ideas onsite at KSOD working remotely with London-based composers, then implement and explore further during an intensive week at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire in London, England. In doing so, students will investigate the cross-cultural collaborative experience, and reflect on their own positions as global ambassadors of music, dance, and culture.
