Ritual: A passage through
by Hahn, Jeremy, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 102; 1523252
Abstract (Summary)

The exploration of ritual during rehearsals has been the foundation for this thesis and the basis for the creation of three choreographed dances entitled: Arrival, Nautilus, and Being, Witnessed performed at the Martha B. Knoebel Dance Theater on the campus of California State University, Long Beach. Each piece explored different themes yet shared a similar process, which developed the use of ritual and its relationship to the shaping of a dancer's expressivity, authenticity and agency, and the development of choreography. Each dance served as an applied practice that refined the presentation of choreographic intent and explored a variety of different collaborative relationships. This project report chronicles the analysis of these three dances, which explored the application of theoretical information and experimental practice.
