Embodying Dance Dramaturgy — the body of the dancer, the body of the choreographer and the body of the dramaturg (last edited: 2023)

About this exposition

A bird’s eye view over rehearsals rooms in Europe in the 90’s to witness the bodies involved in the choreographic and dramaturgical processes of dance creation. A close encounter with the bodies of the dancers and the body of the choreographer and a look at the new actions of relation being performed. A dive into the movements of knowledge production, questioning the placement of the body of the dramaturg and looking for a source of dramaturgical awareness in choreographic learning, thus shifting the focus to the body of the dancer. Drawing from my learning experience with Susan Leigh Foster at the beginning of the 90’s, I support a model of embodied and performed thinking, where studio practice and theoretical requests overlay and call upon the body and the mind to perform synchronous acts of non separation and embodiment.
