Amphibious Trilogies @ Samos Volunteers

High stakes

Throughout April 2017 a team from Amphibious Trilogies will work with Samos Volunteers, an independent group who mainly organise activities for refugee shelters on the Greek Island of Samos, close to Turkey. We have been there once before, in August 2016. We anticipate a changed situation. We are wary. We are glad that our skills may be of some help.

AMPHIBIOUS TRILOGIES

AMPHIBIOUS TRILOGIES

Project leader: Professor Amanda Steggell, in collaboration with Andrew Morrison, Director of the Centre for Design Research, Oslo School of Architecture and Design and Hans-Jørgen Wallin Weihe, Professor of Social Work, Lillehammer University College.

Start: August 2016

AMPHIBIOUS TRILOGIES is a conceived as a journey-based series of choreographic experiments. The main aim is to artistically explore and monitor littoral spaces (between land and water) via an extending choreography of related literal, limbic and liminal conditions, environments and articulations. Three subjects are set in motion; choreography, design and sociology. They are probed within three thematics/works; ‘island’, ‘pond’ and ‘passage’. Physical and remotely-sensed sea journeys, island hopping and pond wallowing are examples of research activities. These activities will ’embody’ and lead to a series of creative works.

Choreographic poetry

Choreographic poetry: Creating literary scores for dance
Janne-Camilla Lyster

Norwegian Artistic Fellowship Programme
Start: 2013
Ongoing

Introduction
I am a dancer, choreographer and author. I received my BA in Contemporary dance at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, the Academy of Dance in 2006. Through my artistic research project, I aim to develop literary scores for dance, and search for approaches and examine the outcome of procedures connected to writing, composing and adapting such scores.

Historical and contemporary context
My artistic research project has roots of familiarity in the so-called New York School of music, dance and visual arts 1950-ies and 60-ies. The New York School began experimenting with methods for expansion of notation systems and dissemination of information between composer and performer, and between choreographer and performer through what came to be called open form scores. These scores are characterized by their use of experimental notation, such as text, symbols, numbers and so on. Text based scores can be subdivided into two main categories: allusive scores and instructional scores. My main interest lies within the allusive type of scores, focusing on what can emerge that is not yet imagined or controlled – in creating a gap or a framing a potential for the performer/reader to engage with. In my artistic research project I will investigate how a type of allusive scores I would like to introduce as “literary scores for dance” can be crafted in a very specific way, and without strict instructions or descriptions.
