KT Niehoff

Adv/Prof Creative Process: Reinvent Your Eye
This work uses improvisational scores to examine the components associated with creating non-linear, non-narrative performance art. Structures are designed to dissect elements such as personal movement vocabulary, space / architecture, theatrical elements, time / timing, identification of an idea and development, risk and wild card. Participants focus on defining each element’s parameters and universal properties, as well as individual likes / dislikes and aesthetics. Over time, the elements combined in multiple configurations, allowing the work to develop in complexity and possibility. Because the class uses improvisational scores as the exploration device, the group also focuses on working effectively with an ensemble, maximizing opportunities for intelligent, in the moment decision-making, or spontaneous composition.

ARTIST BIO:
KT Niehoff is an artist whose focus is the complex relationship between bodies and space.
