Jacquelyne Boe and David Janesko

Round 14 (2019-2020)

Jacquelyne Boe and David Janesko will be creating a series of choreographic algorithms that limit body movement and joint articulation as a method of amplifying subtle patterns of the unconscious body and mind. The artists will use a variety of recording techniques ranging from drawings, made using various types of prosthetic mark making tools fixed to the dancers bodies, to more remote sensing technologies such as full spectrum photography, sonar, and physiological instrumentation.
