"Choreographic Objects: artefacts and traces of physical intelligence "
This talk will focus on the idea of a growing collection of self-determined reflections on dance practice being published by choreographers in a variety of formats. Often working in collaboration with researchers, editors and designers, these heterogeneous publication projects make use of text, moving image and more open-ended digital tools and platforms. Many of these projects are either newly available or are in the process of development. They point towards the artist's role in developing alternative forms of documenting, analyzing, notating and archiving contemporary dance.
Scott deLahunta has worked as writer, researcher and organiser on a range of international projects bringing performing arts with a focus on choreography into conjunction with other disciplines and practices. He is currently Senior Research Fellow Coventry University/ R-Research Director, Wayne McGregor|Random Dance and Project Leader Motion Bank/ The Forsythe Company.
