- Choose one of the artists from the Dance and Multi Media module, and discuss how the mode of delivery affected your perspective. For example, if you choose a site specific work, you could discuss how your perspective on the site changed after viewing a dance in that location. Or if you choose a dance film, you could discuss how the camera angle allowed to notice something you would have never looked at before, etc.
- Research and choose one clip (not in this module) of dance that you feel is breaking ground and changing audience perspective on dance. This is very open, and could include a category such as how technology or multi-media and dance intersect, how dance is created, who is doing the dancing, where the dancing is happening etc.
