dc.description.abstractThis thesis offers two layers of analysis of a contemporary dance titled Watch The Gap, a site-inspired work initiated by the architecture, design, and function of the Jamaica, Queens (New York) train station. For the dance analysis, the investigated question is: can a dance that is inspired by a specific location but performed on a concert stage still fit within the genre of site-dance? By comparing its choreographic methodologies within the field of site-dance, a second investigated question arises: can these practices be codified and taught as part of a course in a university setting? Through this study I examine, explain, and analyze the different choreographic tools and aspects of site-dance impacting the field of dance by a comparison study with Watch The Gap and a pedagogical investigation into improvisation and site-dance. In doing so, pedagogical applications, key terminology, and methods, discussed in the paper, help to clarify and add to the discussion of this rapidly growing art form.en
