The Talk

Jonathan Burrows gives a talk originally written for the series Realities of the Scripted, curated by HfMDK Frankfurt and the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies, University of Gießen. The Gaps Between questions what a script is, how it might relate to the notion of an expanded choreographic field, and when and how that might be useful or not. The talk is a temporary archive of fragments of thoughts and images from a number of sources, with a particular focus on the performance work of Mette Edvardsen and Vlatka Horvat.


Jonathan Burrows is a choreographer whose main focus is an ongoing body of pieces with the composer Matteo Fargion, with whom he continues to perform around the world. The two men are co-produced by PACT Zollverein Essen, Sadler's Wells Theatre London and BIT Teatergarasjen Bergen. His A Choreographer's Handbook has sold over 15,000 copies since its publication in 2010, and is available from Routledge Publishing. Burrows is currently a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Dance Research, Coventry University.
