Choreographic entanglements in the analogue and digital

The School of Performance and Screen Studies at Kingston University, London invites you to an afternoon of talks, installations and discussion on the topic of the intra-action between the analogical and the digital in current dance practices.

The last decade has seen the proliferation of research on performance and digital culture, advocating the potential of digital practices to transcend physicality and extend its performative possibilities. In the field of dance, recent years have witnessed the emergence of digital projects and archives, both internationally and in the UK, aiming at the development of tools that expand our ability to engage with dance objects and processes. This event re-thinks the digital/analogical nexus in contemporary choreography and proposes to reframe the relationships between these two modes and processes in non-oppositional terms, by interrogating their entanglement.

Exploring the complexity of analogue structures by drawing attention to the richness and heterogeneity of their codes, the event investigates the productive convergence between new technologies and physical (material, cultural, experiential) bodies in the work of choreographers Charlotte Spencer (UK), Gabriele Reuter (Germany/UK) and Janine Harrington (UK/nomadic), who will present and discuss aspects and examples of their practices. They will engage in conversation with Dr Hetty Blades (C-DaRE, Coventry University) and Dr Stefanie Sachsenmaier (Middlesex University) and will invite the audience to experience their creative processes through video projections and audio recordings. The roundtable will be chaired by Dr Daniela Perazzo Domm (Kingston University London).

We invite all to join us for an afternoon of discussion, sharing and networking. Refreshments provided.

Booking is essential to attend this event.
