In partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of MFA in Performance and Choreography I propose a twenty-two minute performance titled “Speculation.” The production is a choreographic approach to exploring biomechanics and mental responsiveness to specific emotion driven prompts. The choreographic process implements physical mechanics of the body; acceleration, force, gravity, momentum and projectile trajectory; to devise a mental response and deeper understanding of the movement. Through guided tasks of texture, dynamics and internal or external movement quality will reinforce the intentions of the entire performance. “Speculation” will include an original sound score developed by Ernest Provencher, costumes designed by Devin Walter and lighting designs created by Brian Shevelenko. The production is intended to be performed live for the 2022 Spring Footholds Concert titled Co-Motion. The Concert is projected to take place in the Earl Ernest Lab Theatre at the University of Hawaiʻi Mānoa.
