Choreographic Devices is an annual event that activates the choreographic as a methodology for trans-disciplinary forms of inquiry and rehearsal. Bringing together practitioners from across an expanded ecology of practices, this multi-format forum speculates on and with choreographic arrangements and their complex modes of co-production. Choreographic Devices tests how material assemblages, organisational forms, and modes of being alongside each other, might be choreographed otherwise.

Following on from the larger scale inaugural 2022 edition, the 2023 iteration acts as a smaller scale in-between moment to both echo the prior event and its ripple effects, as well as reflect and imagine toward next year’s event. During four distinct sessions taking place over one day, four hosts and their invited contributors will utilize the choreographic across a range of bodies of knowledge to, again, conjure the 2024 edition of Choreographic Devices as the afterlife of the performative gestures enacted now. 

With contributions by: Murat Adash, Charlie Ashwell, Eglė Budvytytė, Elly Clarke, Ofri Cnaani, keyon gaskin, Adrian Heathfield, Raimundas Malasauskas, SERAFINE1369, Protektorama toxica, Emily Rosamond, Sara Sassanelli, Edgar Schmitz, and Himali Singh Soin.
