Abstract / Summary

This is Not Not My Dance is a practice‐based research project that advances processes of choreographic re-enactment through a method of choreographic re-documentation. I propose a means of re‐documenting choreography to make it a digital resource for new creation. This thesis presents a renegotiation of notions of performance and documentation, emphasises aspects of alteration in processes of preservation, and re‐evaluates ideas of exclusive ownership rights of dance works. Lepecki’s claim that choreography is an inconclusive ghostly matter ‐ derived from Derrida’s philosophical use of the terms ghostly and haunting, together with Schneider’s notion of cross‐temporality ‐ theoretically support an understanding of choreography constituted by a process of re‐documentation.
