IDOCs » MTD Residency Mud - The Dance
Grounding practices of dance documentation, experimenting with matter’s dissolution —to decompose and to appropriate.

1939 views      0 appreciations    

In the residency Emilie, Maria Ines and Kerstin have focused on links between their artistic practices, and common denominators on questions of documentation. Discussions of their body of work in relation to documenation led to formulating questions, which in turn led to scores. In Mud The Dance they will offer some of their scores for participatory experimentation, contextualized by the worlds they imagined together in the residency.

Encounter and context
Real time documentation
Fascia as narrator

which led to notions of

A dance that has never been danced
Edible documentation (the orality of dance)
The fascia park
A map as togethering of scales
Secret dances

Her current PhD research within C-DaRE at Coventry University asks: what happens in dance performances when the audience is reading?
