Towards a Deterritorialised Field of Dance

Ruth Gibson, Carol Brown, Jenny Roche

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter will outline affective, experiential and relational realms of dancing
between virtual and real environments in a creative film process, taking place
between the dramatic landscape of Central Otago, New Zealand and the motion capture
studio. The project entitled We Are Here And We Are Everywhere At Once
explores how travelling through virtual environments can ‘make strange’ our
engagement with the real. It questions how awareness of embodied presence, which
is augmented and altered through its intermingling with digital technologies and
apparatus might inform how we engage with our dancing bodies and the natural world, uncovering new perspectives on the role dance knowledge might play in practice-led research.
