This article aims to explore the intersections of live coding and choreography and discusses the practice-as-research project Hacking Choreography. It reflects on the compositional process as a live event as well as examines the use of computer programming languages within dance scores, the creation of scores in real-time and the transparency of these scores to the audience during a performance. Four pieces created by the author are discussed in terms of these elements and compared to live coding practices for computer music. Through this live coding emerges as not only a performance practice related to sound or visuals but continues its trajectory as a transdisciplinary approach to live performance events.
