Centre for Dance Research (C-DaRE) Research Events

ICE, Coventry University, UK

Wednesday 23rd May 2012; 17.30-19.00

The Choreographic Language Agent (CLA) is a choreographic software system designed in collaboration with London-based choreographer Wayne McGregor as a creative tool for investigating and generating choreographic ideas in the studio. The CLA builds on McGregor’s ongoing research into the development of Choreographic Thinking Tools through collaborative work with cognitive scientists. Also formative to the development of the CLA has been a focused research into how computation and embodied practice can creatively intersect and includes a close collaboration with Marc Downie of the OpenEnded Group (, who has worked extensively with other choreographers including Merce Cunningham and Trisha Brown. The user interface for the CLA has been built inside Field, Downie’s open-source environment for developing digital artworks. For this presentation, Rothwell & deLahunta will describe the project background and context, show evidence from the studio-based work and talk about future plans for the CLA.
