Inscribing Movement:

Articulating strategies for live writing processes.


Designed for postgraduate and doctoral students, this workshop/lecture introduces some of the distinct writing processes that are generated through Orr & Sweeney’s live research practices as based around themes of dance ecology.

Working through exposure to specific sites using immersive and durational methods, the body is exposed to certain sensory data that offers the writer information through an immediate somatic-empathetic framework, within environmental performance practice. This session will articulate certain strategies for developing sense based languages as a means of reflecting and transcribing perceptual modes of engagement, whilst considering the notion of dance as a live writing practice and the dancer as self-inscribing entity.


Presented as part of The Association for Phenomenology in Performance Studies (APPS)  Research Seminar Series, at the University of Sydney Performing Arts Department, October 2012.
