Long Form Improvisation, Feedback Loops and Cybernetics - A discussion of trans-disciplinary performance practice

Glenn Noble, Daren Pickles

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    This is an edited and augmented transcript of a critically reflective discussion following performance-based research into the integration of theatre and dance improvisation practices and audible performance ecosystems. We discuss how the live work adheres to Cybernetic principals and how material is generated via this 'system of feedback' between the performers, technology, spectators and the environment. The discussion considers 'ex nihilo' creative methods and how 'meaning' is formed, drawing upon Marshal McLuhan's hypothesis concerning the 'post-literate society'. The ontological perspective is considered in reference to Martin Heidegger's essay 'The question concerning technology'.
