My doctoral artistic research -project examines the choreographic potential of reading. In the research the notion of choreography operates simultaneously as an analytical device, problem to be examined, and as an artistic outcome. The primary method for the research is choreographic experimental practice, which delves into the process of dynamic place-taking in which human body couples into the surrounding movements and kinaesthetic fields from microscopic to telescopic, and beyond, without the aim of mastering the movement. This experimental process circuits, examines, and develops understanding how choreographic practice can be understood as an embodied hyper-reading practice, which materializes, de-, and re-codes movements of the situated contextual transforming circumstances that choreograph my body. Thus choreographic practice processes here simultaneous incoherent multiplicity, which is formed by relations, interconnectedness, and reciprocity of movement, surrounding materiality, human corporeality and embodiment, place, space, and context.


The research process consists of following movements and transformations:


from choreographer towards choreoreader


from choreographing towards choreoreading


from grounded embodied choreographic structure towards astroembodied choreostruction


from human body vessel towards human atmospheric organism
