Abstract

Between 2nd and 5th April 2012 I worked with Rosana Irvine and sixteen other performers towards the reactivation of Xavier le Roy’s ‘Project’. This work culminated with a public performance of the game-choreographies created and post show discussion, at Siobhan Davies Studios, London.

The four days’ work focussed on using Le Roys ‘General Rules Score for Project’ to discover the remit of game based choreography. The questions which emerged throughout the process and framed the work include:
What is a rule and what is a task? How can rules enable a system of logic to appear? What is the aim of a rule inside a game and how does this shape the overall aim of a game? Does a game need to be finite or infinite to be satisfying to play and spectate? How evident do the rules of the game need to be to the spectators in order to engage with them? How can the players of the game start to reveal relationships within the nexus of the game? How can players start to own the rules of the game and create strategies within them? What shift needs to happen in the performance of the game for it to take shape as a choreographic event? What scope is there for the players to notice and attend to the spectators of the game/choreographic event? How are the game players’ decisions similar or dissimilar to those originating from a choreographic context?
