  • Produced as part of a research residency through a collaboration between the Western Front and the Dance Centre in Vancouver, Canada, this work originated in looking to the histories of experimental movement, dance and performance practices. What Self-Knowledge Is, ¬is an experimental narrative featuring absurd characterizations based on Rudolf Steiner's Eurythmy, Merce Cunningham's non-representative and chance-oriented choreography and the turn towards everyday movements in the collaborations of the Judson Dance Theatre. The work takes up questions around the typically western mind/body dichotomy and further addresses the gap between the interiority of being and the outward expressions that are used in the movement towards meaning.
