Abstract / Summary
As a core part of deLahunta’s fourth research area, "art and science collaborations", this output is directly linked to the main PaR project within the research area. It represents a distillation and refinement of thinking based on the author’s experiences of bringing together choreographers and cognitive scientists in the context of the ‘Choreography and Cognition’ project, 2003 (ACE/AHRB subsidy: £29,000). The article suggests that the role of facilitation within art and science collaboration projects is perhaps best described in term of a framework for thinking about relations and how to encourage particular qualities of exchange, rather than as a functional ‘position’ (i.e. ‘the facilitator’). It reflects on how the practices/themes of willingness, inter-profession, conversations and wording, empathy and collaborative writing relate to the creation of the conditions for interdisciplinary (‘inter-professional’) collaboration. Ultimately, the article endeavours to propose the beginnings of a description of a ‘method’ for inter or cross-disciplinary collaboration.
|Additional Information:||This output is informed significantly by the author’s encounters with social anthropologist James Leach who arranged deLahunta’s related residency at Kings College, Cambridge University, and an interdisciplinary conference on the theme of ‘Description & Creativity’ at which deLahunta gave a paper, ‘Choreographic Executables’. Currently, deLahunta is continuing to bring choreographic practices into conjunction with non-arts disciplines (architecture/design, computer science, geography, cognitive and neuroscience, etc.) in the context of three choreographic research projects. Each of these projects employs approaches that are closely related to those described in this article.|
