Abstract

This article will explore the convergence of dance and digital technologies with reference to a project that is bringing together a leading choreographer and a team of researchers to create a digital archive. The key question that the article will address is whether a re-examination of digital technology in relation to its representation of the corporeal, coupled with a widening knowledge base and acceptance by creators and audiences of ‘experiencing’ performance within radically re-defined spheres, will encourage a new generation of ‘born digital’ dancers and choreographers with the necessary skills and experience of digital performativity to enable them to develop and engage with much more intuitive digital tools to support and expand the horizons of the choreographic process.
