Choreography and Corporeality

Choreography and Corporeality

The Choreography and Corporeality working group is a site for exploring the overlap of choreography, broadly understood as designing movement of bodies, and the experiential state of having a body or bodies in movement, whether human, non-human, or more-than-human.

The Choreography and Corporeality working group is a site for exploring the overlap of choreography, broadly understood as designing movement of bodies, and the experiential state of having a body or bodies in movement, whether human, non-human, or more-than-human. Members of the working group focus on many kinds of bodies in movement through different socio-political, historical, cultural, philosophical, and practical frameworks.

 

The emphasis of the working group is on works in progress. Participants are invited to submit contributions well in advance of the conference to use our time together in sharing and discussing questions arising from these submissions. In addition, we convene and participate in conference panels and welcome members old and new giving papers at the IFTR Conference to contribute to our discussions. Members who are presenting on panels and not submitting directly to the Working Group are encouraged to contact the co-conveners in advance to arrange access to the papers.

 

In addition, wherever we meet, we seek to engage with local communities through studio visits, practice-led sessions, movement explorations, or performances.
