This seminar will circle around and through a growing collection of materials published in different formats including books, various book and DVD combinations, exhibitions and Internet websites. These publications have been authored or co-authored by and with leading choreographers in the dance field. Not developed as artworks, but with the aim of furthering understanding of choreographic ideas and processes and bringing these into newly productive relations with both general audiences and other specialist practices. The Motion Bank research project of The Forsythe Company was one of the latest to publish such material. Lots of observations to be made and questions to be asked.

Scott deLahunta has worked as writer, researcher and organiser on a range of international projects bringing performing arts with a focus on choreography into conjunction with other disciplines and practices. He is currently Senior Research Fellow in partnership with Coventry University (UK) and Deakin University (AUS) and Director of Motion Bank/ The Forsythe Company.
