Recurrences

Recurrences
Brynjar Åbel Bandlien, Research Fellow

My project aims to develop an analyzing method that I have been working on over the last ten years. This method can be used in artistic research processes within the field of dance and choreography. When a creative process has become fully underway, certain situations, events, actions and movements can be recognized as recurrent within the process. I call these Recurrences. Rather than being created or produced these recurrences manifest or fall out of the dance practice. Once they have been recognized they can be understood and pursued in the process and the final performance.

The artistic aim is to follow artistic processes in this way, seeking the potential for new experiences and ideas as well as to develop the methodology based on the practice. This aim is founded on my own experience as a creative dancer in the work of several internationally acknowledged choreographers and dance makers over the last fifteen years.
