Dorsal Practices - Murky Back Thinking (2024) Emma Cocker, Katrina Brown
In progress Dorsal Practices — Murky Back Thinking is a collaboration between choreographer Katrina Brown and writer-artist Emma Cocker, for exploring the notion of dorsality in relation to how we as moving bodies orientate to self, others, world. How does cultivation of a back-oriented awareness and attitude shape and inform our experience of being-in-the-world? The dorsal orientation foregrounds active letting go, releasing, even de-privileging, of predominant social habits of uprightness and frontality — the head-oriented, sight-oriented, forward-facing, future-leaning tendencies of a culture intent on grasping a sense of the world through naming and control. Rather than a mode of withdrawal, of turning one’s back, how might a backwards-leaning orientation support an open and receptive ethics of relation? How are experiences of listening, voicing, thinking, shaped differently through this tilt of awareness and attention towards the back?

Subliminal Throwback complete documentation (2024) Natasha Barrett
Subliminal Throwback was a site-specific outdoor 3-D audio sound installation located in the amphitheatre between Gydas vei 8 and Slemdalsveiein 11 at Majorstuen, Oslo. The work was created by Natasha Barrett as part of the Reconfiguring the Landscape Project hosted by the Norwegian Academy for Music in Oslo. Subliminal Throwback marked the end of a year-long process researching and experimenting on this urban outdoor sound landscape, and includes the application of innovative technical and artistic approaches to investigating its potentially interesting qualities - acoustic features, sounds that pass us by, or qualities too fleeting to pay heed to amidst our other thoughts and activities.
