Instructions for the video

Please follow carefully the instructions for all tasks and practice as much as you need. You can shoot with any camera you want. It is important that the entire body is visible throughout the whole film. The exercises should be filmed in a dance studio, without lighting or other arrangements. Use music if you want to, otherwise you can film in silence. A general principle: The front is everywhere (360 degrees around you), meaning that you do not treat the camera as your front.

  • Task 1: Dance phrase, 30 seconds. (see instruction video below)
  • Task 2: Jumping exercise,30 seconds (see instruction video below)
  • Task 3: Score exercise, 1 min and 30 seconds
    - Initiate movement from different parts of your body while moving up and down from the floor.
    - Change initiating body part whenever (body part could be e.g. your lower leg, a tiny part of the back of your hand, the tip of your left shoulder blade, your fingertips, your chin, somewhere inside your body etc.).
    - Move up and down as many times as you wish during the time frame.
    - Alter your use of time through: speeding up, slowing dow, including pause
    - Also: Use your sense of weight and your sense of lightness.
  • Task 4: documentation of own practice and/or choreographic work that you feel represent your current movement/artistic interest - 1 minute.
