|On Sunday 12 November 2017 Choreo-graphic Figures: Deviations from the Line will give a one day workshop with shared lectures
(11:00 - 17:00) hosted by Independent Dance at Siobhan Davies Dance Studios, London, UK. Key researchers Emma Cocker, Nikolaus
Gansterer and Mariella Greil ask: How can we develop systems of notation for identifying, marking and communicating the barely
perceptible micro-movements at the cusp of awareness? How can we communicate the instability and mutability of the flows and
forces within artistic practice, without ‘fixing’ that which is inherently dynamic and contingent as a literal sign? This
workshop intensive seeks out the choreo-graphic traces of translational processes, exploring the shifts of attention and modes
of engagement happening at the passage from one medium – writing-drawing-choreography – to another. We will investigate somatic
practices and compositional decision-making within a collaborative creative process based on embodied gestures.
