dc.description.abstractThis thesis studies the patterns found in contra dance, representable by manipulations of 2x2 matrices, and investigates their use onstage in performance dance idioms. On March 26 and 27, 2010, eight dancers explored these patterns in a twenty minute dance performance titled Dance Hall: Tänze de nasha lingua. It contained seven sections comprised of contra dance, ballet both on pointe and flat, tap dance, and body percussion, and included songs in six different languages. Each section examined a different question through the choreography. This paper is a reflection of the artistic process required to create Dance Hall: Tänze de nasha lingua, including research, casting, music selection, and the choreography.en_US
