Presentation 10 November (to be confirmed)
This creation research is about how emotion can affect you and how your body responds to these emotions. It explores how a person can become immersed in the emotions of another through empathy and how different people can have different feelings and responses in similar situations. This creation will explore how emotions can be translated into dance and how dance can be used to transfer emotions to others; to use the bodies and the movements of the dancers to convey emotions to the audience.
