Choreographic Objects

Funded through the AHRC Beyond Text programme and led by James Leach, University of Aberdeen, the project brought together research teams working in collaboration with the choreographers William Forsythe, Siobhan Davies, Wayne McGregor and Emio Greco PC. The teams worked to bring choreographic ideas and processes into newly productive exchanges with both general audiences and other specialist knowledge areas via interactive scores and installations, choreographic software agents and digital dance archives.

Screendance Network

Led by Claudia Kappenberg (University of Brighton) this international AHRC-funded network was founded in 2009 in order to advance an interdisciplinary theoretical and practice-based discourse on the artform. The Network brought together UK and US based researchers, scholars and practitioners and has since established the International Journal of Screendance, published by Parallel Press/University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA.

D-TRACES

Funded by JISC, the D-TRACES Project (Dance teaching resource and collaborative engagement spaces) developed a model for embedding Siobhan Davies RePlay within the Personal Development Planning (PDP) element of the undergraduate dance curriculum at Coventry University, thereby generating learning objects for much wider distribution. The aim was to enhance the students’ experience of working with online resources for application and transfer to other learning situations whilst providing a model for application in the wider HE sector and in disciplines other than dance. The methods developed are now embedded within the dance curriculum and continue to encourage students to develop effective ways to self-archive, build more digital resources and support the health of dance as an academic discipline.

EChO

Enhancing Choreographic Objects (EChO) received AHRC follow-on funding, extending the work of the AHRC Beyond Text Choreographic Objects project.  The project was undertaking knowledge exchange from social science during the development of a specific choreographic object, the prototype Choreographic Language Agent (CLA) created by scientists and designers in conjunction with leading UK choreographer, Wayne McGregor.  Having successfully developed the CLA as a creative tool for use in the studio, the project aimed to further develop the CLA in the form of a public installation that embodied aspects of McGregor’s choreographic process, and communicated them to new audiences.
