CHOREO | GRAPHY (l'ecriture danseuse)
Working on the relation between the nature of thinking in dance/movement and the nature of thinking in language/speech, and thinking about "choreo-graphy" as the "writing-of-dance" or "dance-writing," we will do an equal amount of moving and writing in this workshop, so the products and effects of the work will be in both text and dance. We will work on writing from and through the dancing body to think how an affected, bodily, and danced relation to language could help us re-think dance and choreography, as well as how an affected, bodily and danced relation to language could help us re-think our relation to words and logocentricity in general. What kinds of pre-lingual, extra-lingual, super-lingual, or proto-lingual modes of thought take place in dancing, and how can we find ways to talk and write about them, or talk and write through and from them? This workshop is not on embodying language, but rather on how to embod-ify language itself.
