The purpose of my creative research was to analyze my choreographic process and answer the research question: how will implementing somatic principles impact my choreographic process? In determining the impact I analyzed the use of choreographic approaches that bring proprioceptive awareness to interdisciplinary somatic themes of bodily systems, sensing, connectivity, initiation and sequencing. These somatic themes were utilized in movement invention and exploration as well as the structuring and performance of my choreography. Additionally, the research involved clarifying my role as a choreographer and my relationship to the dancers in my work. My creative research occurred in three choreographic phases and resulted in the production of B.O.D.I.E.S performed in three consecutive sections titled Discovery, Exploration, and Identity November 5-7, 2010. B.O.D.I.E.S demonstrates how somatics will lead to greater movement possibilities and dynamic range to explore in the craft of dance making.
