Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

The visibility of music
by Kondrath, Jessica Marie, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 73; 1517710
Abstract (Summary)

In fulfillment of the requirements for a Master of Fine Arts degree, three dances were choreographed and performed at the Martha B. Knoebel Dance Theater located on the California State University, Long Beach campus. The dates each of these works premiered were October 14, 2010, April 28, 2011, and October 13, 2011. The dances were 10 minutes, 9 minutes, and 16 minutes in length, respectively.

As If Falling Up was an exploration into the musical score as well as an investigation into eliminating gender to instead showcase the dancers' bodies as tools by which the dance was created. The Art of Breathing was created as a visual representation of the Bach cantata to which it was set. The Aesthetic of the Cool was created to explore the juxtaposition between set choreographic material and structured improvisational scores and how both respond to the musical accompaniment.
