Creating Dances - 3

Motif & Development

objectives
Objectives
  • Recognise motifs
  • Know how to create & develop motifs
what is a motif
What is a Motif
  • A movement or phrase of movements that embodies the style & content of the dance
  • It can be manipulated & developed in many different ways
  • Generally consists of actions & has dynamic quality & spatial design

It can be as simple as a spiral

  • performed as a turn with arm gestures,
  • then as a travelling pathway
  • and finally as a group shape
why are motifs important
Why are motifs important

Motifs are essential ingredients which can be

  • Varied
  • Repeated
  • Developed

And help structure and organise the dance

why are motifs important5
Why are motifs important
  • A 2 or 3 minute dance will contain a number of motifs (try to aim for at least 3)
  • Motifs are helpful to the audience as they communicate the style & meaning of the dance & help the audience to process what they see
  • You will be assessed on how effectively you develop & link motifs in your solo composition
  • and on how successfully you select & structure material to communicate you idea in your main choreography
recognising motifs
Recognising Motifs
  • The central solo for Bird Song has a key motif that is repeated & developed
  • It consists of the torso arching & the arms lifting above the head as if the lungs are expanding
  • In this motif, movement & sound (the call of the Pied Butcher Bird) become one
  • Look at the set dance that you learned with Jo.
  • Identify the key movements & phrases that are repeated & developed
how to develop a motif group
How to develop a motif (group)
  • These can be developed in exactly the same way as a solo
  • You have more opportunities to vary the body, actions, dynamics & space between dancers
  • You can develop relationships in time and space
  • You can use numbers differently
