Nomadic Making; enacting difference through collaborative performance practice

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This essay considers how collaborative performance practice enacts Braidotti’s Nomadic subject and disrupts advanced capitalism’s suture of object and subject formation (Lepecki) thereby offering a means for posthumans to ‘become imperceptible’ (Braidotti after Deleuze). Collaborative performance practice, I argue offers a lived experience of the non-unitary subject and political potential of pure difference. I suggest also that ‘spectator studies’ (Melrose) reconsiders its focus on object over process by arguing that choreographic knowledge resides not in the event or the performance score but the processes of assemblage and in-between relations of people and practices (Manning).
