The research project "choreo | graphy" is an inquiry into the relationship between thinking through dance and thinking through written language, taking the notion of choreography literally as dancing-writing. Respecting that different media afford different thought processes, ideas, and concepts to be reached, this practice-based artistic research project has unfolded within artistic processes and experiments to explore and develop the relationship between dancing-thinking and writing-thinking. Investigating the media-specificity of thought in dancing together (khoreia) as it relates to the media-specificity of thought in language and specifically writing (graphia), the research strives for an adequate relation between the two, one that serves both art forms and respects their differences. The separation of the word choreography into "choreo | graphy" signals the project’s intention to open space for consideration and reinvention of the poetics of choreographic practice and discourse.
