Dance Discourse Project #18

Exploring Choreographic Thinking

This Dance Discourse Project looked at “choreographic thinking,” a term that describes the ways ideas arise during the process of moving. Many contemporary artists use it as a voiced resistance to the misconception that dance needs ideas before choreography is realized, that thought precedes motion, and that movement serves to express meaning. We explored these ideas and their usefulness in understanding choreography as thinking, moving, speaking and writing.
