About Figures Series

Updated 19 March 2018
Figures Series ran from 2016 to early 2018. It was conceived as an expanded choreographic project comprising two public art works – Ah kissing and Breathing Line: gifts for the future, a collection of eleven written choreographic scores as well as multiple articles, reviews and interviews with other artists working in the various intersections of choreography, dance, visual art and participation.

Figures Series website remains as a public resource. The scores on this site may be freely used under a creative commons license.

Figures Series is dedicated to the memory of Rosemary Butcher.

Figures Series
is the umbrella title for a growing collection of works ranging across participatory performances, choreographic scores, reviews, writings and interviews

Figures Series questions what 21st century choreography is and what it can do

Figures Series operates across and between dance, visual arts and participatory practices. It’s interested in works that seep into the public realm and works that invite the experience – or imaginary possibility – of more radical and political ways of being together (even when quietly so)

The site will gradually become an expanded choreographic work and a resource populated with scores, images, articles, interviews and reviews.

Figures Series is dedicated to the memory of Rosemary Butcher.
