About the prosject
The publication Choreopoetic can be viewed as both a platform for exchange and a curated context for choreography. The format is both thought and thing, a work that seeks to open up a poetic, discursive space that offers opportunities to experiment with choreographic form and communication. Choreopoetic provides a space for – and profiles – choreographic voices that use writing and text as an integral part of their artistic activity and work orientation. The publication encourages reflection on how choreography can reach out beyond the purely temporal moment of the immediate event and carry across discourses, bodies, time and space.
Choreopoetic introduces fourteen prominent voices through the medium of choreographic texts – texts as works – written especially for this publication. What the contributors have in common is working in a variety media and formats, and that they all use writing and text alongside – and as part of – their choreographic practice. They are artists who explore the outer limits and boundaries of language – and the projection of language onto various media and materials, whether in the theatre, the gallery or the museum. They are artists who address the question of how reality exists in language and extends out into physical space.
