• Carol Brown (2019) Field Guide for Choreography as Research Vida Midgelow and Jane Bacon Researching (in/as) Motion Theatre Academy of the University of the Arts, Helsinki

    A field guide for wayfaring through the creative and institutional spaces of choreographic as reserach must necessarily be mutable, mobile and capable of weather change. Through Choreography as Research Practice, the traditional character of knowledge is usurped by a refusal to distance thinking from moving, knowing from being, thought from the material specificity of bodies. This work recognises that knowledge is always a material as well as a conceptual reality. In posing problems through dance as aesthetic, ethico-political and intellectual enquiry, research becomes activated through diverse terrains requiring topographical know-how. Becoming a wayfarer proposes a choro-philosophy that involves mobilising, mapping and writing simultaneously in relation to spaces, places and kinesthetic topographies.

  • Brown, Carol (2005) Making Work for Our Time ChoreoForum Dance UK

    When flesh meets data what dancing then?  The question is a provocation.  What kinds of choreographic practices emerge through the integrated circuitry of dancers and digital media? And what are the possibilities for the survival of theatre dance, that most economically fragile and publically marginal of all the arts, given the omnipresence of digital media  and screen technologies? At the heart of this talk is the belief that emerging technologies can support new models of practice for choreographers without losing touch with our embodied selves and liveness. 'Making Work for our Time' and 'Making Time for our Work' was part of a day of talks presented by Dance UK as part of the Gulbenkian Programme.
