Sections in this Resource
Bush is inspired by a collection of Aboriginal Dreamtime creation stories. Moth is one of the stories told in Bush.
Moth is the third dance in a section of Bush that is titled Life Cycle. (The first two dances in the Life Cyclesection are Leaf and Caterpillar).
What do students already know about movement and dance, the moth and its life cycle?
What did the students experience watching Moth? What did they observe and what is their response to the work?
Use improvisation, exploration and experimentation of movement to create dance, communicate ideas, and reflect back on Moth.
