Abstract

In this article, I will discuss a piece of practice entitled After the Future: A Homage to Bifo, which was performed in June 2012 and April 2013, and now exists as a video work (https://vimeo.com/74394747). Through discussing the work, I will explore the possibilities of choreography as the practice of editing words and movements. As the project is preoccupied with the relationship between humans and technology it asks
where meaning resides – in the body, in between bodies, in the voice, in gestures, in words, in spoken or written language, in movement language, in languages of the body. I will expand on ideas on the shifting role of the choreographer from author to editor, the dancer as copyist, performance as a ‘catching-up’ in time and place and the implications of a continued understanding of choreography as a theoretical and a practical field of study.
