Attitudes and Principles of Making

This is a list of principles — or perhaps attitudes — of choreographic practice and making. The list is not exhaustive, and indeed comprises many ideas that are so general that they would hold for any kind of making. In such a way they demand that we consider to what extent choreographic making is special at all. Perhaps the list might — as we continue to consider the nature of choreographic practices — help to provoke our questions, our processes, our methods and our choreographies.
