The TERP system is a tool designed for human movement composition without rehearsal. TERP experiments with movement instructions to find those that are meaningful to regular people. Think of it like a voiced GPS for groups of non-dancers!
At the TERP event, you will be wearing on your arm a small computer that is about the size of an iPod. You will also be wearing a set of headphones through which you will hear a pleasant voice providing instructions about movement. None of the instructions you will be responding to are physically taxing. Some require interpretation, either physically or emotionally. Most will be straightforward; all of them will be simple to follow.
It’s important to be able to move about the room in whatever you’re wearing that day. Also, sessions are recorded for the archives. The fun part of this TERP system for movement is that you will be creating, with the others, a little art piece in real time.
