IDSI 2011

The 2011 intensive featured daily technique classes, developing individual movement phrases through tasks.

The composition course ran under the headings of Sensation, Perception and Synesthesia. The participants developed duets and combined them with poetic descriptions. We also worked with a task score from the piece meanwhile (Koch, 2010) and developed a response piece to To Have and to Hold (Shapiro and Smith, 1989).
