What would it mean to be literate in dance? How do conceptions of bodies change over time? Scott deLahunta reflects on how his own body has mediated ideas over time, through different iterations of his life as a performer, teacher, and then someone who is ‘being-with’ makers. He then looks at how drawing, digital technologies, and journal spaces like Movement Research each impact the idea of being ‘literate’ in dance and reflect varied conceptions of the body.
This talk was part of Crossing Borders 2015 and was presented in partnership with London Contemporary Dance School.
Scott deLahunta has worked as writer, researcher and organiser on a range of international projects bringing performing arts with a focus on choreography into conjunction with other disciplines and practices. He is currently Senior Research Fellow in partnership with Coventry University (UK) & Deakin University (AUS).
