Weber State University’s Moving Company Presents:
Dance Science Fest: A Body In Motion
A performance linking the study of motion with the practice of motion
Erik Stern (Performing Arts) and Adam Johnston (Physics), together with Weber State University students, created an interdisciplinary performance highlighting the parallels and connections between the arts and sciences. Throughout this extended investigation and creation, they continued to develop an understanding of how practices in physics and engineering can be interwoven with those in dance and choreography. Performances of A Body in Motion were hosted and toured for audiences of up to 1000 students at a time in the spring of 2015. In addition, the performance was put on for general audiences during WSU’s Orchesis dance recital that same season. In addition to a full performance, we developed workshops for both students and teachers.
These webpages provide resources for classes, teachers, and students who have not participated until now. Take a look at:
- the workshops we’ve created and teach,
- samples with lessons and prompts,
- our science guide to the performance,
- or our galleries.
We’d welcome your comments on any of these.
