DANCE NUCLEUS
ELEMENT#4: Improvisation Technologies

Introduction
Recent developments in choreographic practice has mostly turned towards movement
approaches that allow for the live negotiation of sensorial data. This ostensibly augments the
experience of spectatorship, whereby the relationship between the performer and the viewer
becomes more open to contingencies and open relationality. In ELEMENT#4: Improvisation
Technologies, Nik Haffner shares with us his experience in co-developing the Improvisation
Technology of William Forsythe, as well as other tools and techniques of choreographers that he
has worked with in recent years. Through these “technologies”, we apply practical strategies for
negotiating movement in dance in order to discover new knowledge that is produced by, through
or for the body.
