Special: Choreo-graphic Figures: Deviations from the Line

Lecture Performance and Workshop by Alex Arteaga, Emma Cocker, Nikolaus Gansterer, Mariella Greil

“How can we attend to the process of artistic sense-making from within or inside, that affective realm of energies, emergences and intensities operat­ing before, between, and below the more readable ges­tures of artistic practice? How can we develop systems of notation and performativity for sharing this often hidden or undisclosed aspect of the creative process, for communicating the experience with others?”

“Choreo-graphic Figures: Deviations from the Line” is an artistic research project involving key researchers writer-artist Emma Cocker, artist-performer Nikolaus Gansterer and dancer-choreographer Mariella Greil, working with others including artist-researcher Alex Arteaga. With artistic research at its heart, “Choreo-graphic Figures” stages a beyond-disciplinary, inter-subjective encounter between the lines of choreography, drawing and writing, for exploring those forms of artistic knowledge produced in the slippage and deviation as different modes of practice enter into dialogue, overlap, collide. In this performance lecture, the researchers draw on the publication “Choreo-graphic Figures” as a ‘score’, performing their findings and reflections as live event. Alexander Damianisch, Head of Research at The University of Applied Arts Vienna, will act as a respondent in the follow on conversation.

An interdisciplinary workshop will give deeper insight into “Choreo-graphic Figures”, introducing practices of attention, conversation and notation for making tangible the barely perceptible micro-movements at the cusp of awareness within artistic process. Limited number of participants. 

The number of participants of the workshop on Saturday is limited. If you would like to participate or you have a question, please send an email to: bas3_

The Salon für Ästhetische Experimente is a cooperation with the Haus der Kulturen der Welt and co-funded by the Einstein Foundation Berlin.
