Introduction   Objectives   Experiments   Summary [as of 31/05/04]

The data collected from the experiments is still being analysed and published papers are anticipated. Other forms of project documentation and analysis will be disseminated via this website in the near future, a further application for funding to continue the work has been submitted, and McGregor is premiering a new choreography in London in June 2004 that has been influenced creatively by the above exchanges.

What this project has effectively demonstrated so far is that a radical cross-fertilisation of ideas using shared research approaches can enhance innovative thinking in both choreography and cognitive science; and that connections can be discovered and sustained between choreographic processes and the study of movement and the brain/ mind that are both scientifically and artistically interesting.
