PHYSICAL PRACTICE AND PERFORMANCE AS RESEARCH METHOD

Throughout my involvement in Academic Artistic Research the past 15 years I have been experimenting with developing physical practices as a way to explore research questions I have. The questions I have address on some level the field of dance and choreography but they have also become ways of developing knowledge that bridge into much larger questions about the fabric of reality and the entanglement of our cognitive abilities, movement apparatus and perception. In this way movement has revealed new territories to me, while I still remain devoted to dance as a playful and aesthetic domain.
