Choreographic Play: Investigating Dynamic Choreographic Engagement with all Bodies

“Choreographic Play: Investigating Dynamic Choreographic Engagement with all Bodies is informed by the burgeoning trend to include multi-ability bodies in the practice of contemporary dance. An important aspect of this research addresses inclusivity whereby improvisational methods and choreographic processes can be infused within communities comprised of all abilities of all populations of people. The goal of my research has been to originate improvisational and choreographic processes and choreography that can be experienced and understood by all who take part in it. This research considered ways to share both processes and performative aspects of choreography by utilizing a practice-based methodology in the creation of three choreographic case studies. These are, first the I Am solo project entitled at the end of a stem, second, a self-produced project (RE)Trace and finally, Snowlight. These case studies represent the containers where activated investigations are magnified and/or realized.”
