This process-led choreographic project revolves around affect, contamination, articulation, revelation and provocation. Choreography is understood in its onto-ethical potential of becoming: as a tool for creating ‘intensive zones of difference’, as Deleuze and Guattari write. Beyond a stable or delimited definition of choreography, this dialogue invites a multiplicity of relational layers through the writing of letters, conversations and choreographic dialogues conducted both in the absence and presence of each others’ bodies. Kinetic as well as discursive responses will be documenting those practices in writing, photography or audio/video recording. Each 'move' of the dialogue process will be documented, though not necessarily using the obvious medium.
