I personally dance since I was a child. I had experiences in some fields of dance so far and enjoyed a lot every one of them. I have started to dance hip hop for 6 years and this dance type makes me fulfilled with joy, satisfaction and relaxation. For this reasons I chose my project around this subject because I wanted to do something interests me so I won’t be get bored when I am doing the project.
This project is going to be used for dance shows. With this project I will be focusing on the problem of how song’s lyrics and choreographies can be visualized by using new design techniques. I see this as a “problem” to be solved because in hip hop dance there are some “bias” that this type of dance cannot have a purpose or a meaning. But people who are familiar with this subject may know that, there is a culture called ‘hip-hop culture’. In addition, when I say: “ I do hip-hop” to some people around me don’t even know that means. So that is the other reason that I am involving dance to my project, to show how hip-hop dance can be done.
When I start to do my projects I will have some challenges due to learning some new software to visualize some images or conceptual drawings by projecting the scene or my dancer friend and I will have some difficulties when we try to arrange the movements according to the visuals on the scene. Because, all moves have to be done in the exact time of the song that we want to catch the exact matching.
Learning a new software or how to programming may seen as a obstacle but to achieve this project I know that I have to learn and practice them and they won’t be seen as an obstacle for me because I really want to make this project real. Also learning this software and programming will gain me more knowledge about this type of design projects. In this project I will be working with hip-hop songs, dances and visuals arranged according to them. So I have to come up with some conceptual, imaginary thoughts to make the “dance show” more interesting and exiting. That’s why I think this project also will improve my imagination because I want to create something never done or thought before, I hope I would be able to achieve that.
