Abstract

Bodytext is a performance work involving speech, movement and sound. A dancer’s movement and spoken description of a dance are re-mediated within an augmented environment, where acquired speech is re-written and re-sonified through physical interaction. The displayed textual objects recombine, creating the score for an emergent and ever evolving performance.

Bodytext seeks insight into the relations between kinaesthetic experience, memory, agency and language. Dancer, audience and machine are enmeshed
in a recursive dynamic they must both follow to its (il)logical conclusion, the innate entropy of the system giving structure to the overall work.
