  1. Choreographic devices Motif development Complementary And Contrasting Climax Unison Canon Question and answer Repetition, variation and development

  2. Motifs • Motif – is a sequences of action/ movements which can be developed • Will consist of the six basic actions • Travel • Balance/stillness • Jump • Turn • Gesture • Fall

  3. Motif development Below is a list of ways in which motifs can be developed • Add or change the action • Change the size • Change the level • Using different body parts • Alter the focus • Change the direction,dimension or plane • Alter floor pattern • Reverse the order • Change the dynamics • Fragment the motif ie change only some parts • Mix bits from different motifs

  4. Complementary and contrasting • Complementary • Are movements that have already been seen but are performed using • 1. different body parts • 2. levels • Contrast • Movement which is noticeably different from anything seen so far • i.e. a light slow motif can be contrasted with fast large jump

  5. Climax • Highlight • The dance should be organised to gradually build towards this making it seem inevitable • Final climax should confirm the audiences expectation • Yet also provide an element of surprise

  6. Canon • Also can be referred: • Lead and follow • Question and answer • Two or more dancers dancing one or more dancers dancing one or two motifs at different times • Motifs are danced in succession

  7. Canon devices • Simple canon – strict order,sensitive timing and an awareness of others • Simultaneous canon – dancers doing the same motif at the same time but starting from different points • Cumulative canon – each dancer joins in with the lead dancer and all finish at the same time • Loose canon offers more opportunity ie different levels, facing or placements

  8. Unison • The same movement at the same time • Similar or complementary movements at the same time • Contrasting movements at the same time

  9. Repetition, variation and development • Repetition – complete repeat of a motif • Variation – when you add another action to the movement • Development – you repeat it at different levels, fronts, etc
