Jonathan Burrows and Adrian Heathfield begin a creative dialogue

Jonathan Burrows and Adrian Heathfield have started work on a creative dialogue exploring the relations between movement and writing. They are investigating a set of questions in this area: What are the relative weights of gestures and words in a performance space? How can each open each other? What place does music occupy in a negotiation between muted movements and sonorous words? What might be some principles of composition for a generative relation between creative writing and choreography? Findings from this investigation will be manifested in an event in 2010. Fragments from the process of their dialogue can be found here.
