Abstract:
This lecture-recital document evaluates the collaborative process in five American works written for flute and dance. My perspective is that of a musician interpreting and performing music for choreography and dance. This project aims to elevate the significance of collaborative works in general, and in the flutist's repertoire specifically. The second and broader purpose of this study is to identify fundamental elements of the collaborative process. Using five works as a model, I have developed collaborative guidelines that assist musicians, dancers, and choreographers in the performance of these and other works. This study asserts that a shared vision is vital to a successful collaborative experience. An awareness of the differences between musical language and kinesthetic vocabulary is also necessary. In addition, the incorporation of theatrical parameters must be explored. Teamwork, trust, flexibility, and communication must be developed between the performers. Understanding fundamental elements of the collaborative process provides a foundation for bringing music and dance together in performance.
