Introduction

GCSE Expanded Program Note Jessica Lovick-Earle Year 10 Expressions Style: Lyrical Modern Duration of dance: 1.48 mins Explanation of Stimulus Idea: My stimulus is a painting called Composition VIII by Kandinski & I have focused on the shapes and lines to develop ideas and show expressions. Title & Composer of Accompaniment: Who I Am - By Beverley Knight Description of Movement Content: Motifs: My motif was based on these shapes in the corner of the painting. I start with a ronde de jambe � terr� into a turning spring step to show one of the circles. Then I perform a series of retier�s bringing my arms down slowly - focused on the triangle. I then spiral turn making a spiral gesture with my arms to signify the other circle. I make two strong, isolated movements changing my weight to signify the square, with my arms in parallel lines. ...read more.

Middle

My first motif communicated my main dance idea because I used movements, which signified the abstract shapes that were in my stimulus. To develop my motif, I used changes in direction, level, I also decided to use a change in turn, and in particular I used a spring turn as a variation to the detourn�. This is because it changed the dynamics of the dance and complimented the climax in the music. In my dance there is a contrast between the floor work and my travelling sequence, my floor work is slow and graceful, but my travelling sequence is fast and swift. My music also inspired me with the dynamics and gestures I used. I did a lot of reaching arm gestures in my floor work; this was to represent the lyrics and to reach out into the painting to find emotion and personality. ...read more.

Conclusion

My second motif is the most successful as it shows the audience the shapes I have chosen using my body, it is also successful because they are quite isolated like elements of the painting. I did this because the part of the painting I focused my motif on isn't really linking in any way, they are all separate shapes. My travelling sequence into my flow work is very fluent and with a change of dynamics from fast to slow, and levels from high to low. I did this because the section of the painting I did it on was made of joined up semi-circles in the centre of the painting and I interpreted that to create spirals and leaps descending into floor work. I feel that my dance was successful in representing my stimulus, and the motif and gestures both worked well together to signify the shapes and my own interpretation of the painting. 04lovickj ...read more.
