Choreographic Devices

Choreography is no longer simply the art of making dances: complex models of the choreographic are increasingly tasked to investigate and animate the intersecting spatial, corporeal, affective and informational dimensions of being entangled with the world.
What kind of choreographic arrangements can we compose to put diverse thinkers and practitioners in relation to one another? What kinds of time spaces can be plotted, imagined and enacted, when the symposium itself is choreographed and takes shape as a sequence of sessions, each brought to life by different hosts? Through contributions and interventions by over 30 international protagonists from across an expanded ecology of practices, this multi-format symposium speculates on the affordances of choreographic (re-)arrangements and their complex forms of co-production, and tests how organisational formats, material assemblages, and modes of being alongside each other, might be choreographed otherwise.
