Perception Frames

Perception Frames
a book of choreographic scores
published 2014

The work was developed through a long research process that took philosopher Gilles Deleuze’s critique of representation, orientated that critique to choreographic practice, and sought to develop conditions for what Deleuze calls ‘the act of thinking in thought itself’

Perception Frames can be used as a workbook, choreographic toolkit, teaching resource and as performance scores. The scores work with processes of giving attention and shifting attention in a present moment. They aim to constrain modes of anticipation in thought and action and to generate an always-different choreographic producing

The scores are: ‘Initial practices’ (a sequence of 5 preparations), ‘Practice frames’ (18 mini scores), “Availabilty’ and ‘Tendings’ (two extended scores)

More than forty artists have contributed to the development of Perception Frames through participation in research workshops in London, Dartington, Glasgow, Nottingham and Leeds and through independently testing out the scores in their development
