Intro to Akram Khan ICDSIB Independent Contemporary Dance - Updated 13/03/19

(0)
This lesson introduced Khan with a specific focus on his influences, training, and how he relates to key contemporary characteristics. I have also attached a word document which I have started to use with my students to stop them from wasting too much time copying anything pointless off the slides or missing important information, as I have highlighted the key facts they need to know. I take no credit for the Lorna Sanders article, but decided to attach it with the lesson to make it easier as it is used. Complete with embedded videos, questions, tasks and homework.

Akram Khan - Zero Degrees Section 1 Analysis ICDSIB Independent Contemporary Dance

(0)
Lesson PowerPoint including video links, starter questions, tasks and analysis grids (blank and completed) for Section 1 of Zero Degrees. The accompanying worksheet is used to help students take relevant notes and saves time. This lesson continues on from Intro to Akram Khan but can be used without. I take no credit for the two written resources (collaboration, and interview transcript) but they are used for the lesson. I used the interview transcript when discussing dummies as a reading task, then the collaborative process resource is directly used in the PowerPoint for a reading comprehension task.
