“Mathematextual Performance”

Nicolas Salazar-Sutil is a Chilean cultural theorist based in London. He has published widely on the interface between symbolic languages (mathematics and computer languages), and performance. He is also a performance and theatre practitioner, and he has developed a number of cross-artistic installations and performances with his company Configur8.
He obtained a PhD from the Centre for Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths College, and an MA-Res in Theatre  and Drama from Royal Holloway University of London. His lecture-workshop on ‘Square Embodiments’ is divided into three sections: a) critical analysis b) video visualisations/exemplifications and c) practice.  In the first part of this workshop he will analyse the use of the geometric object of the Square in performance practice, and its rendition into various numerical objects (Square numbers). A corporeal semiotic approach (the semiotic square) is used to compare this non-technological formalisation of the body with technologically mediated forms of bodily formalisation, specifically in relation to the role squares have in the construction of computerised forms of embodiment… The workshop then explores examples of Square Choreography in American Dance (American folk tradition, Balanchine, Bruce Nauman’s Dance or Exercise on the Perimeter of a Square; Walking in an Exaggerated Manner round the Perimeter of a Square). The workshop concludes with a practice-based rehearsal of the opening sections of one/ two/three (depending on number of participants) mathematexts that make use of the square:  Klein Group Ritual Dance by Drid Williams; Quad, by Samuel Beckett and Choreographing Category Theory 4, by Brian Rotman. Entry: Open to All
