Over the last months I followed the research of choreographer Amos Ben-Tal and artist/architect Gosse de Kort, with dancer Genevieve Osborne and initiated by danceplatform WhyNot.
Moving through the Middle is a documentation of and a reflection on their collaboration. The publication follows the working process between the two artists, exploring the key questions and ideas that shaped their conversations and informed their collaborative work. To contextualize their research, the publication includes examples of experimental approaches that have been developed at the crossroads of architecture and choreography over time, as well as a glossary elaborating on the vocabularies that informed the collaboration. Hyperlinks in the text allow the reader to cross navigate through the publication, as a textual space that can be traversed in many different ways, depending on the reader’s choices.
