Abstract

One of the alluring aspects of choreography is the obscurity of its strategies and its propensity to evoke speculative movement-thinking. As artistic research that is intuitively and critically developed from my physical location in Aotearoa New Zealand, astrochoreography evolves its aesthetics, theories and strategies in close observation of a Southern Hemispheric night sky. Drawing materials from deep space, the choreographic body becomes more than human in its genealogies of practice and live performance. This essay proposes an entanglement between the astral and artistic, cosmic and choreographic, engaging speculative theories of darkness, performance writing and global astrophysics.
