Joe Goode on the process of making:
“To make something, to build something, is not just exerting the force of your skill and intelligence upon the world. It is also a process of looking inward, of gaining new perspective, of inhabiting your life in a more deliberate way.” – Joe Goode
Please review the following priority guidelines our company members consider while evaluating submissions:
- Are there crafted choreographic choices being made? Are choreographic risks being taken?
- Does the artist play with basic choreographic elements in interesting ways? (i.e. Use of space, Time/timing, Contrast, Visual impact, Music, Layering, Viewpoint/perspective, Collage/collision, sound, emotional content)
- Is there clear evidence of editing?
- Does the work engage deeply with its subject matter?
- Does the work arise from personally authentic question? Is there personal vulnerability?
- Does the work consider an intersection of sound and movement?
