contradictions of choreographic practice as a field of continuous reciprocity between formality and socio-political topicality, between everyday experience and aesthetic appearance, between immediate af- fective involvement and the more distant formation of discourse. At the same time, this refers to the attempts of the relatively young institutionalization of an academic discipline to emancipate itself and to an environment where e.g. work- ing biographies tend to become more and more complex. Consequently it is even less sufficient to locate and respond to dance

Dance Theory as a Practice of Critique GABRIELE KLEIN Since the 1990s, the notion of dance and/or choreographic practice1 as critical practice has played a major role in dance studies. Pirkko Husemann’s description of artistic methods of working as critical practice (Husemann 2009), Susan Fos- ter’s theorem of embodied politics i.e. the politics of embodiment (Foster 1996; 2002), Randy Martin’s theory of mobilisation (Martin 1998) or André Lepecki’s topos of kinaesthetic politics (Lepecki 2006) are all prime examples of this ten- dency. All of these

videos. As such, Xen and »Xen« construct a new body for the musician in several senses and without compromising the artist’s authenticity (quite the contrary). The album’s music follows suit in using electronics to augment acoustic timbres to suggest a choreography of transcendent bodies and gestures, though hardly one of conventional beauty and elegance. Arca released something of a second ›coming-out album‹ with »Arca« in 2018, this time taking the extra steps of leading with his relatively unprocessed voice and appearing in person in three music videos and

intervention by presenting information in a form that was usable in only one way. Participants would have to be sufficiently privileged in the culture of the digital to reinterpret the information back. Of course, this digital-person choreography was designed in by humans in the first place and carries assump- tions about the kinds of uses and users. Arduino and other maker intermediaries require some basic knowledge of coding, and the better the resources for coding the more things open up. The combination of sensors and e-health kits did provide an extensive range of

section of the chapter, I return to reflections about memory as a site of movement, which I touched upon in the introduction, by interlacing creative and academic literature with concrete examples of perforMemory. (For biographical information on the dancers-choreographers, please refer to chapter four, where a note precedes each interview.) The pieces, although they are fundamentally diverse in terms of choreographic vocabulary, movement techniques, dramaturgic construction, aesthetics and themes, share several features. First, they all relate more or less explicitly

The individualized value systems created by such practices she in turn also contrasts with the publicness and thus pervasiveness of ballet and its measurement of quality, arguing that “in ballet the ultimate point of choreographic reference is always the externally generated norms or ideals of the ballet style – what [Laurence] Louppe calls an ‘absolute reference [1997:31]’” (Gard- ner 2008, 58).
