Cutting together-apart (une greffe)

Teoma Naccarato, John MacCallum

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Throughout this article we have transplanted passages from Karen Barad and Jean-Luc Nancy, threading their voices through one another and with our own, such that we remain responsible for our re/configuration of these estranged articulations. With reference to our ongoing use of heart rate sensors in choreography and composition, as well as our practice of Relational Listening, we foreground the metaphors of grafting (Nancy) and diffraction (Barad) to probe the ethical and aesthetic dimensions of ongoing differentiation within and between bodies, movements, voices, and identities.
