Body_object series is a study situated within the MFA Choreography at Laban. Taking a critical view of the assumption of a body-subject-consciousness unity, dancer Julia Kayser Torres and I work in close dialogue to explore subjectification through movement. Drawing on improvisation techniques and theories of distributed cognition, the movement is a phenomenological ‘smearing’: consciousness of the dancer is dispersed in and of space. Performance outcomes experiment with text, object, projection and sculpture.
