Hutchison, Stephanie (2014) meta. [Live Performance (Dance)]

View at publisher


meta riffs off the embodied knowledge Steph has gained through working with John McCormick’s AI Agent. The strangeness of finding herself working alone in the studio and being met by traces of information embedded within her, from her engagement with the Agent, has produced a new physicality for Steph and also new ways of considering choreographic practice. Taking a step back to ponder what is actually happening it became clear that like her work with aerial apparatus the residual feedback of encounters with the Agent: its’ morphologies, textures, sense of weight, buoyancy, the tasks and games developed throughout its’ training regime all can offer external frameworks or tasks from which to further develop her own work independently. meta is the first realisation of this new practice.

meta was presented within the Emergence program in collaboration with John McCormick at Metanoia Theatre, Melbourne, August 1 - 3 2014.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
