Jannine Saarinen : non-character choreography

December 4, 2010

Jannine Saarinen (choreographer)

Jennifer Hum (Jen-Yi Hum), Alex Bascynskyj (interpreters)

 

 

 

Beginning

 

Came with a finished piece that was non-character-based

Goal was to continue learning about non-character–based choreography

 

Challenges

  • To choreograph with abstract movement

  • To go right back to roots of impulse to determine action/movement

  • To find inspiration and interest in the simplicity in order to build more

  • To trust the interpreter to collaborate and help develop the root explorations

  • To persevere

 

Development/skills

  • To see details in a simple action

  • To build sophisticated action from core sensory-based movement 

  • To evaluate and choose material that has potential for development 

  • To develop with the interpreter a shared understanding of the process and the material

  • To know when to change directions in the process
