Research Seminar 3: November 4; 4:00 pm :: Maira Spanghero: Dancing numbers, figures and patterns:

Maira is conducting post doctorate research entitled DANCE & MATHEMATICS: Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker’s use of the secret number and William Forsythe’s use of algorithmic structures in choreography?. The intent is to understand how an abstract mathematical concept can be transformed and used to develop new choreographic form and structure. She is a professor, researcher and dance critic who teaches at the Catholic University of Sao Paulo (PUC/SP).

Research Seminar 4: November 18; 4:00 pm :: Joanne ‘Bob’ Whalley_and Lee Miller: Not Going Out: Dissent & Cupcakes:

Over the past ten years Whalley & Miller have developed an increasingly conjoined performance and research practice. Their work has been performed across a range of contexts, from local platform events to international performance festivals. Increasingly, they have struggled with how best to articulate this practice, a practice that is supported (and to some degree given licence) by their work in the Academy. This paper will consider Whalley & Miller’s tense relationship with professionalism and practice led research.

Research Seminar 5: November 25; 4:00 pm :: Jennifer Parker-Starbuck: Reflective Viewing: Orlan’s Hybridized Harlequin, Banksy, Bacon, and the Animal-Human Divide:

This paper explores ideas of hybridization emerging from Orlan’s recent work, “The Harlequin Coat,” the recent art exhibit of Francis Bacon at the Tate Britain, and the artist Banksy’s “Village Pet Store and Charcoal Grill” in New York. In very different ways, these bodies of work expand possibilities while reflecting a cultural shift in animal-human relationships. Each exhibit seems to challenge traditional modes of viewing so that audiences might better reflect upon questions of the animal in contemporary society. Jennifer teaches at Roehampton University in Drama, Theatre, and Performance Studies. Her work has focused upon the historical and theoretical implications of new media/multimedia and its relationship to the live body in performance. This work with multimedia has expanded to include work on cyborg performance, trauma and memory in performance, dis/ability in performance, feminism, animality and the non-human, and live art practices.

December 3-13, 2009 :: Networked Virtual Performance Envirorments: Japan UKIYO LAB — A workshop-symposium on virtual performance aesthetics, telepresence design and transcultural communications coordinated by Yukihiko Yoshida & Johannes Birringer (Keio University)(Brunel University):

In the second phase of the UKIYO project collaboration, the DAP-Lab team (Brunel University) will reside in Tokyo and be guests in residence at Mixed Reality Lab, Hiyoshi Campus, Keio University, directed by Professor Adrian Cheok. There the researchers from Japan and Europe will spend several days investigating new approaches to 3d virtual reality and virtual movement design, and exchanging knowledge and methodologies. In the second half of the UKIYO research encounter, Johannes Birringer and his DAP team will meet some of the leading Japanese choreographers and digital artists interested in hybrid performance choreography, and they will work together from 8th to 12th December 2009. An international symposium will be hosted by Keio University during this time frame, with an evening program of presentations and films.

UKIYO is supported by the DAP-Lab at Brunel University’s Center for Contemporary and Digital Performance , a PMi2/connect British Council research cooperation Award; The Japan Foundation.

Following upon an invitation by producer Marlon Barrios Solano and dance-tech TV, the Centre broadcasts selected Performance Research Seminars live from the Brunel Drama Studio – making them available to anyone in the world interested in the subject. Johannes Birringer joined the dance tech TV as associate producer. The one hour talks and discussions are webcast live on dance tech net TV (then archived).
