Writer, researcher, dramaturge, and intermedia artist, working at the crossroads of choreographic practices and performance with other fields, and between theory and practice.
This book was made from the point of view of choreography; it investigates ways in which several movement and sensorial practices may enable and be in direct relationship with page related practices – be they forms of reading, writing, document and theory making, or edition proper.
It emerged during a working period with dance and choreography students at the Danish National School of Performing Arts, back in 2013, as we engaged in practices involving texts from the field of performance studies, doing our best to undo the usual binary distributions that set dance performances along ephemerality, corporeality, liveness, immediacy, physicality – as opposed to forms of documentation, (supposedly) disembodied minds, texts, books, theory, mediation, recording.
Following this pathway, we directed our attention to the experiential, social, architectural, and kinaesthetic relations involved in any form of knowledge production.
