In the example of Gerhard Bohners Trilogy Im (Goldenen) Schnitt (1989), I would like to demonstrate, after an explanation of the overall structure and some particularly informative details on the interplay between body, sound and space, to what extent this is a matter of a staging of artistic research. In other words: here, a (music-)choreographic research process is not only the point of departure but the centre of a production that also invites the recipients to research in relation to their perception. Questions at once urge themselves forth: in which way is a stage space also a listening space, that co-designs movements when it does not even constitute of movement itself to begin with? How does listening change through seeing movements - and the other way round: the watching of movement through listening - and which consequences for the choreographic process does that have?


Stephanie Schroedter is above all interested in the intersection of music/sound and dance/movement (in choreography and improvisation). Her research focusses on the development of models for interdisciplinary analysis on the interaction of audible and visible movements. She qualified as a professor in dance and music technology in 2015 and currently teaches in at the Theaterwissenschaftlichen Institut/Tanzwissenschaftlichen Seminar of the FU Berlin.

The larynx as a central organ that gives us not only a voice but also movement unlocks in us a new functional understanding of our bodies. Vocal sound reflects the inner state of our movement and enables us to deploy the larynx as an organ of perception.

15.11. I 6 PM  I SoDA LECTURE I JULIANNE LONG: WALKING IN SYDNEY LOOKING FOR DANCING I STUDIO 11

In this lecture I discuss the motivation for three research projects: Dance in the City, which comes from the necessity, more than ever before, to experiment and devise resilient work practices and tactical approaches, for working as artists in an ever-changing cultural environment; TROUBLE: a place in time, a large scale film installation project that supports distributed collaborative practices, whereby each artist is autonomous in relation to how they approach the initial stimuli provided by myself as director/facilitator; and Val, The Invisible, a durational performance, commissioned by and performed at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) that worked with the ambiguity of where the performance starts and finishes, moving in and out of the things we do in life that nobody notices, the things that are taken for granted while engaged in the business of everyday life.
