Abstract

In the ‘Digital Resources’ issue of Performance Research we introduced the concept of the ‘choreographic resource’ as a way of framing four research projects involving the choreographers Siobhan Davies, Emio Greco|PC, Wayne McGregor and William Forsythe (deLahunta and Shaw 2006 : 53–62). These artists are perhaps best known for their contribution to the field of dance through their artistic productions. However, the focus of the research projects we wrote about was not on artistic production per se, but on emergent complementarities between choreographic ideas and processes and their mediation through and in relation to other practices. We want to provide a brief update on the developments over the last two years, particularly where to access some of the results.

Bibliographical note

Author's note: - This article outlines the research output of four research projects involving the choreographers Siobhan Davies, Emio Greco|PC, Wayne McGregor and William Forsythe. These artists are best known for their contribution to the field of dance through their artistic productions. However, the focus of the research projects written about in this article is not on artistic production, but on emergent complementarities between choreographic ideas and processes and their mediation through and in relation to other practices. This article’s peer reviewed publication and its predecessor in an earlier issue of the same journal established the original discursive framework for a Beyond Text AHRC funded network project Choreographic objects: traces and artefacts of physical intelligence (2008). That network brought the four projects together in the same investigative context for the first time to engage theories of knowledge production and knowledge transfer with established social science researchers. The network project served to establish a new “community of practice” around these four projects that continues to impact related practice-based research developments nationally and internationally for example the Inside Movement Knowledge project 2008-2010 (Netherlands based project funded by Dutch Ministry of Education) and Motion Bank 2010-2014 (Germany based project funded mainly by the German Federal Cultural Foundation). The published article provides a seminal reference point and is listed in the resources and reference lists for these projects.
