Abstract:

In this article, I share insights from my choreographic practice. Through creative and reflective texts and photographs, I intend to create a connective field of knowledge, which supports the discussion and development of choreographic strategies based on somatic practice and the associated aesthetic implications. My main interests are the act of decision making in choreographic processes that operate neither with set movement material nor set aesthetics, and the strategies of navigation in creative processes based on somatic practice. I therefore reflect on the possibilities of non-verbal thinking and the role of imagination. I am interested in the use of somatic practices throughout a creative process. I thus refer less to the first phases of research of movement material and more on the overall process and requirements of a creation that enables sensuous sense-making and embodied communication, experience, knowledge and reflection. In the end, I am interested in the social relevance of this kind of art and aesthetics.
