Research encounters and seminars  @ ICKAmsterdam, NL

Dance, science and technology
The dance field has since few years being very fertile in the production of access to its experiential knowledge. A varied range of artistic lead research projects, online networks and platforms together with the production of choreographic tools have been created. Yet questions around their repercussion, usability and dissemination are of great importance.

New media technologies,  specially the new internet, plays  a great role in the development of this new knowledge paradigm where methods and findings of artistic praxis are placed in the center. Allowing a broad community to have access to process, questions and knowledge generated within artistic environments while reflecting on the meaning, life and potential of the different generated materials, is at this moment of great importance for our artistic field.

Throughout two different programs Notation series aims at providing an interesting overview to the latest gatherings and encounters around dance technology.
This May edition is a collaboration with Marlon Barrios Solano, creator and curator of and (link to sites) as ICKAmsterdam researcher in residency.

Eco-systemic Embodiment: from Gregory Bateson and the latest approximations
An Ecology of (EMBODIED) mind(S)
The two seminars are articulated around two documentaries as portals for the discussions and activities. These two film screening/seminars will explore relevant, influential and polemic ideas from the cybernetics pioneer Gregory Bateson and its latest post-humanist developments in relation with embodied practices.
Day one: May 19th

11am to 3pm
An Ecology of Mind: A Daughter’s Portrait of Gregory Bateson
Seminar led by Nora Bateson, filmmaker.
Co facilitated by Marlon Barrios Solano
The art of thinking in terms of systems is a practice that requires all faculties of cognitive process. It takes effort to expand the context to include a perspective that can effectively hold the interrelationships of the natural world.
Einstein said, “ No problem can be solved at the same level of consciousness that created it”. To get to another level of thinking, different questions have to be asked, from a different perspective.
When Bateson asked the question, “What is the pattern that connects the crab to the lobster the orchid to the primrose and the four of them to me, and me to you?”-He pushed our perception to the level of patterning of the interrelationships.

The discussion and usage of Bateson’s  ideas will be brought to a broad range of interdisciplinary focuses, from scientific methodology to parenting, and from biological modeling to artistic processes.
Duration 4 hours
Credits and Nora Bateson’s bio:
