ReGenerating the Field

Matt Gough is a generous dancer, theorist and researcher. Though he writes with a critical voice he does so with clarity and in the end it benefits us all. Matt has taken particular interest in the snippets of code posted this week on dance machines as they overlap with fundamental mathematical concepts he has been discussing with his class. After inviting me to write a guest post for his blog quodlibet I collected my thoughts on the purpose of these mini math machines. The post is called math skills.

Matt helps us understand that creating the infidel heteroglossia that is dance-tech "requires a synthesis, and re-framing of knowledge from many fields." Since this is a collaborative process, even in our solos we partner and bear each other's weight. Thank you Matt for your generosity in sharing your dancing and thinking.
