Abstract / Description

Recognising the power of digital algorithms and biological viruses to radically affect everyday experience, it seems timely to investigate how self-organising systems operate in natural and cultural domains.

Drawing on extensive practice as a dance artist and researcher working at the intersection of art, science and the digital towards emergent performative outcomes, I aim to elucidate, through interweaving cycles of practice and research, the possibilities of Phase Transitions.

In so doing I point to postmodern dance methodologies, referencing my own performance works and those created in collaborative relationship with other artists. In seeking to articulate how such performances embody the scientific theory of Phase Transition, I also discuss substantial works by significant choreographers in tracing the emergent outcomes of complex works.

In tracing the dialogic relationship between practice and theory, I underline how independent contemporary arts practice contributes to the evolution of knowledge.
