In order to fulfill the MFA Thesis Concert requirement, I propose a suite of dance works that incorporate mixed media to be presented in the Fall Footholds Concert in Fall of 2012. The total choreographic length will be a maximum of 25 minutes depending on the progression of the work while in construction. This concert will be performed in the Earl Ernst Lab Theatre. The title of my thesis work is Quickly Standing Still. The proposed choreography, video, and set design presented will be created specifically for the concert. Additionally, I will re-stage my choreography of a 2008 solo, Every You, Every Me. The entire body of the choreography will incorporate mixed media projection using still frames and video recording. Media will be projected on a variety of set pieces consisting of moveable fabric screens, the upstage cyc, and fabric panels stretched across the stage. I also intend to design and construct the costumes using new fabric as well as refurbished costumes and clothing. Pre-recorded music and recorded text and sounds will provide the sound score. I will videotape rehearsals to provide feedback, support, and rehearsal aides for the dancers, and myself. Furthermore, the recordings will be made available to the thesis committee to view of its discretion. These videos will be posted on Facebook in a specific group for accessibility. At the close of the concert the rehearsal videos, images, and final performance shots will be compiled into a DVD to show the process in the collaboration of mixed media and dance on the performance stage and to support practice as research.
