Jonathan Burrows is a choreographer whose main focus is an ongoing body of pieces with the composer Matteo Fargion, with whom he continues to perform around the world. The two men are co-produced by PACT Zollverein Essen, Sadler's Wells Theatre London and BIT Teatergarasjen Bergen. His ‘A Choreographer's Handbook’ has sold over 15,000 copies since its publication in 2010, and is available from Routledge Publishing. Burrows is currently a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Dance Research, Coventry University.
I come to academically framed research from my position as a practising artist and performer, and am interested in using the opportunity to question what might constitute research within dance practice, and how academic views might also encompass non-linear, unstable and wasteful aspects of artistic work.
I'm also interested in questioning what an expanded choreographic field might be: how the choreographic accumulates and transforms information; how a spectator processes this information; where the boundaries of the choreographic lie; what the immaterial elements or material traces of choreographic practice might be; and how collective, collaborative and other social aspects of the choreographic become a hidden politics at its heart.
