Shifts of Attention: vigilance, engagement and translational processes
This Intensive seeks out the choreo-graphic traces of translational processes, exploring the dynamics and shifts of attention, modes of engagement and relational intensities happening at the passage from one medium - writing-drawing-choreography - to the other. Evolving previous research around radical scores of attention, notation and embodied diagrams, the project’s focus now turns towards the liminal spaces emerging through crossing fields of practice, through the textualisation of performance matters and experimental forms of translation.
The embodiment of ideas and concepts is explored through rigorous commitment to thinking-in-action. This Intensive focuses on the particularity of expanded art forms through the development of cross-modal perceptive scores, where the question of „how-ness“ overwrites and challenges the notion of disciplinary boundaries. We investigate somatic practices with special care for cultivating alertness to compositional decision-making within a collaborative creative process, and the development of an expanded system of notation based on vitality gestures as embodied diagrammatics.
The CHOREO-GRAPHIC FIGURES Summer Lab will take place over two interconnected workshops: Shifts of Attention: vigilance, engagement and translational processes (Intensive1) and Modes of Languages: words as material (Intensive2). Participation in both sessions is suggested but not mandatory.
Choreo-graphic Figures (2014 – 2017) is funded by the Austrian Science Fund FWF/PEEK.
