Step Feather Stitch is a duet that emerged from physical, interactive experiences of collaborative scores brought to the studio by members of 'Species of Spaces', process-led artists within dance, performance and visual art. Using Step Feather Stitch as an example, the authors create a pathway through the collaborative making process that reveals something of their creative methods whilst offering fragmentary strands that could be woven into practice. This article is designed to offer text and visual stimuli to act both as moments of documentation and provocation for readers to reinterpret actively. Julie Brixey-Williams and Libby Worth became interested in the way that sewing instructions could be danced and dance instructions sewn. Through this exchange and reinterpretation, the rigid demarcation of boundaries between forms dropped away.
