My research interests are trans-disciplinary and practice-based they include: The viewers perception of choreography across multiple-screens, the challenges of ‘choreographing’ with new media technologies, the ways by which recorded dance phrases projected onto architectural surfaces can rupture the reading and context of social spaces.
My current research title is; How might we read the relationship between the viewer and the screen? Exploring the choreographic possibilities of screen technologies. This project will develop through a series of experiments in the relationship between moving image technologies and choreography. The research will survey the relation between spectator and screen from early cinema to virtual reality focusing on the ‘virtual or implied’ movement or non-movement of the spectator.
I will explore the cultural, political & aesthetic impacts of moving image technologies. For example the choreographic relationship between public bodies and the trained bodies of the dance-makers in architectural, temporal and illusionistic space created though screen and projection technologies
