I am _your_ pyrate dancer: Choreographic computabilities dancing inside the interstices of a visceral world
School of Education / Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA)
This study proposes the interstitial as an analytical category for considering distributed choreographic practices of marking and parsing in remote performance collaboration. By repositioning the web browser as a stage, non-human actors become contemporaneous with dancing agents and other intermediaries. The unruliness of unravelling, scrambling, and swilling meaning anew are central procedures to theorising contemporary choreographic practice. Revealed through writing as dancing - compositions of executable code, word and syntax -repetition, intermittent fissures and ocular suspensions are where depths of sentience and meaning reside. The application of plain text computing, in all its constraints, not ordinarily connected to terpsichorean practices paradoxically exhibit a nascent realm for dance making futures to endure.
