Abstract

Driving the Pastoral is a project that mixes the disciplines of writing and dance. Inspired by the senior project for a writing major, Driving the Pastoral is words written by the student presenter, set to music and choreographed for a company of four dancers from Gonzaga University. The presentation will take a look at the process and different components of research and communication that were required to take two passions and meld them to create this dance work. The presentation will include the benefits of interdisciplinary work, the ways it exists in places we might not even see it, and a presentation of the dance itself.
