The research project, Kardía; A Choreographic Investigation Utilizing the Human Heart, examined how findings regarding the study of the heart influences and expands choreographic options for and approaches to dance as a work of art. The heart is a unique and intricate organ that helps sustain life within a human body. Examined for this project were the structure, actions and functions of the human heart. This data informed and inspired the concepts that were applied to my choreography, culminating in the presentation of my original work entitled Kardía; The Quietest Voice. The creative process I used for this project provided me with the necessary circumstances and strategies to investigate how I could implement a research-based approach to my composition of movements. By using this new choreographic method as a way of generating movements, I was able to create a strong visually appealing dance that expanded my breathe as an artist.
