Abstract:

As a physical philosopher, I explore and name my methods of practice. I open the article by naming specific projects and collaborations that have taken place over the last ten years, and continue with an in-depth study of a current body of work as it weaves through the cycles of the element of water. The writing is supported by images that have arisen through collaboration with photographer Christian Kipp and serve to further illustrate the essence of my work. The article is interspersed with insightful haiku-like pieces of writing that reflect my 'noticing', as well as naming, aspects of the hydrological cycle. I have also included longer text-based 'images' that reflect specific moments in my land-based practice. I conclude with naming some of the myriad influences, relationships, readings and landscapes that are both visible and invisible within my work.

  • This journal focuses on the relationship between dance and somatic practices, and the influence of this body of practice on the wider performing arts. The journal will be aimed at scholars and artists, providing a space for practitioners and theorists to debate the work, to consider the impact and influence of the work on performance, the interventions that somatic practices can have on other disciplines and the implications for research and teaching.
