Abstract [en]

Thinking through choreography as dance/writing – both the doing and the score for that doing, the event and the discourse - we propose to shif the focus of architectural practices and pedagogies from an emphasis in the attainment of competencies and static knowledge, to a privileging of processes and modalities of learning that nurture the values of engagement, empowerment and caring responsibility. Choreography situates our work in the realm of performative action and transformation, and it does so with and through our bodies; also, it helps us frame the power of our intraventions, which aim at transforming the world through immediate, responsible and often fragile acts of engagement with matter, movement and life.
