Chapter Two: The Emergence of Choreographic Material
strategies for investigating affect :
Layering and distelling
dance movement interval
use of repetition as a way of producing a movement interval
intensity = vibration / motion / vibratory motion
intensity as mutually exclusive pathways of action and expression.
affect as independent of intentionality
the virtual is the realm of the potential
affect is autonomous in the sense that it escapes the confinement of the particular body that recognises it as potential.
passage + displacement and assemblage
Deleuze & Guattari (1994)
sensation as contemplation / contemplation as creation
affective traces: I think of a trace as an accumulation of instances that register on the body because of their intensity (p47)
dance improvisation as a practice of attending to movement forming, which constitutes a 'field of emergence' (massumi, 2002).
moving-with: points to the fact that both bodies are required for a specific motion to happen.ie.e tangling, knotting, lifting.
