Choreographed by situation

Self-organizing choreography and the dancer's agencement

Mikko Orpana

There are many ways to approach self-organizing or improvised choreography. In this artistic research the choreography is approached as a self-organizing system and investigated for the requirements that this kind of approach demands from the choreographic thinking and practice and the dancer’s work to make the selforganization happen.

This commentary will go through the following key concepts from art, scientific thinking and philosophy:

  • choreography and choreographer
  • composition, assemblage and agencement
  • emergence
  • systems theory
  • situation
  • embodied mind
  • improvisation
  • choreographic knowledge

This doctoral research also contains thorough analysis of three performances and one workshop that were done during the years 2011–2017.
