Last night we brought to class two objects with the same shape.  We explored how to express a shape in three dimensions through movement. 

Our process was largely framed by the work of the dynamic choreographer Wayne McGregor:  http://www.ted.com/talks/wayne_mcgregor_a_choreographer_s_creative_process_in_real_time.html

Here's one of the shared shapes:

Once we had created a movement series from the shape, we infused the movement with an action verb, or, in actor-speak, an objective.

These verbs were gathered from a list generated by the sculptor Richard Serra, who applied them to his work with rubber and steel:

to roll
to curve
to crease
to fill
to tease
to end
to continue
to lift
