Negotiating the middle of our works
In her post, “The Muddle In the Middle,” Erin Hartshorn wrote that the beginning serves to “set up the story, the ending pays it off, and the middle has to do everything else…In short, [the middle] shows all of the information we need to find the ending believable.” Writers use middle sections to develop characters, conflicts, and subplots. Choreography shares a similar burden, whether abstract or narrative in structure. We traverse this same notion of development, particularly regarding the character of movement. This month on The Choreography Clinic, we are reflecting on how we, as penman of movement, negotiate the middle sections of our work.
