Same Difference

Nicola Conibere, Emily Orley (Editor)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This piece of writing elaborates some of the form and affects of the choreographic work it discusses, a piece called Count Two (2010) by Nicola Conibere. In doing so it engages the potentials of retrospective critical reflection for extending the thinking at work in a live performance, whilst invoking some degree of embodied engagement with formal and expressive exploration. The approach was one of organising words on a page a bit like bodies on a stage, an exercise that articulates the shared practices of choreographer and writer as putting things in relation.

Same Difference is a chapter in the edited collection 'The Creative Critic - Writing as/about Practice' edited by Katja Hilevaara and Emily Orley.
