These pages reflect on a short, intensive collaboration that took place during the fourth Dance and Somatic Practices Conference (2017) – a methodology lab I initiated to discuss and elaborate on working among and across material constellations of various orders. Three people with diverse backgrounds spent time co-investigating material agency, earthly matters, atmospheric impacts, geoastrological time scales and emplacement: Nigel Clark (NZ/UK) – social geography/geological agency/anthropocene/fire; Simo Kellokumpu (FI) – choreographic thinking/atmosphere/scale/reading; and Paula Kramer (DE/FI) – intermateriality/movement/body/site-specificity. The lab took place in the studio and outdoors, where together and alone we tested, moved, read, talked, discussed. In the end we shared an indoor installation and outdoor performance practice. This text is written by Paula, a third of the trio, from a partial and particular perspective.

  • 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.
