Separate Spaces: some cognitive dimensions of movement by Scott deLahunta
About : Drawing observations from a pilot arts and science research project (Choreography and Cognition 2004/05) this essay explores connections between choreographic processes and the study of movement and the brain/ mind. It describes some of the productive relationships that emerged from the intersection between the different perspectives, vocabularies and understandings shared during this project, and how these can inform creative thinking in a range of practices.
