This article considers two ‘choreographic objects’, Synchronous Objects for One Flat Thing, reproduced (2009) and Using the Sky (2013). In response to articulations from performance researchers Scott deLahunta and Bojana Cvejić, I outline the ways in which such objects can be seen as ‘poetics’. Drawing on ideas arising in literary theory from Gérard Genette, and dance studies from Laurence Louppe, I consider how the scores utilize technology to draw together articulations about the process of dance making with the resonance of the body in performance.
