PETER CHU — PART OF PRINCETON DANCE FESTIVAL RE-IMAGINED

The Program in Dance welcomes acclaimed choreographer and chuthis Artistic Director Peter Chu as Guest Choreographer for Fall 2020. Learn more about this non-curricular performance opportunity as part of Princeton Dance Festival: Re-Imagined.

From Peter Chu:

“The potential of human connectivity during a creative process is something I value and do not take for granted. It is my responsibility to provide a creative process that nurtures awareness so that individuals can better understand how to peacefully connect with themselves and others when perspectives and opinions begin to shift.

The creative process at Princeton will be filled with thought-provoking yet playful journeys that evoke the artists’ spatial perception while encouraging them to explore their body’s internal breath and expression. Viscerally charged with moving imagery, this creative process will celebrate raw, curious, and honest communication!”
— Peter Chu

PRINCETON DANCE FESTIVAL RE-IMAGINED

How can we create new methods of dance and choreography for the online environment that reimagine frontiers of physical practice and the choreographic space? Students enrolled in DAN 324: “Princeton Dance Festival Re-Imagined” for Fall 2020 will take a unique venture into dance and choreographic creation culminating in a live, virtual Performance Festival. Led by professional choreographers Dean Moss, Rebecca Lazier, Francesca Harper, Silas Riener, and Olivier Tarpaga, students will explore the intersections of dance and multimedia performance, digital animation, filmmaking, site-specific theater and art, or music. Movement practice and creative work will be supplemented by selected readings and viewings to expose students to broad historical precedents and provide cultural, social, and political context.
