4.314/5 | Advanced Workshop in Artistic Practice and Transdisciplinary Research: Choreographing the City

Instructor: Gediminas Urbonas

TA: Chucho Ocampo Aguilar

MIT ACT in partnership with Theatrum Mundi, prof. Richard Sennett and choreographer Dr Adesola Akinleye presents the class Choreographing the City.

The class will look at an emerging lexicon (for movement) that connects to ideas shared across dance-making (choreography), to building/city-making (community).

The aim of the course is to explore how research and creative collaboration between choreographic and spatial practices can help create new techniques, lexicons, and ways of consulting with community around urban design. Participants will look at how choreography (seeing movement as a ‘three-dimensional language’) can contribute to larger discussions across subject areas that engage with movement in space and the Place making that the experience of choreography (dance) creates.
