Firebird Forensics

Presented by
Paul Rissmann and Josef Brown
Subject:
Music

Firebird Forensics was a unique collaborative cross-curriculum composition and performance project to create a dance work that responds to Stravinsky's The Firebird Suite.  30 music students from government school students were given the opportunity to dissect Stravinsky’s Firebird and expand and explore their own composition skills and ideas under the guidance of Paul Rissmann. Dance students were given individual and group choreographic tasks to devise a new work through problem-solving and manipulation of the elements of dance. At the conclusion of the project, the students presented their work in a public performance.
