On Time A Workshop with Choreographer Padmini Chettur

One of the commonly used temporal structures in the Indian classical form Bharatanatyam is a system of subdividing time, and thereby speeding up a phrase. The principle can be adapted for contemporary dance practice, in ways that ask for us to observe time's relationship to movement quality, as well as providing us with strategies to create dynamic within and across groups of performers. In this workshop, we'll begin by creating a simple repetitive action/ phrase. This can range from a single gesture, a line of text,or a small movement phrase. We'll then look at ways to juxtapose these threads, make relationships between temporal structures in order to slowly enlarge the possibilities of having multiple conversations simultaneously. The activity will bring us to think about the differences between timing together or not, the possibilities of creating a large composite image out of multiplicities.
