Abstract:

Current discourses in performance theory cast interdisciplinarity into a dilemma that errs in the direction of excluding practice as meaningful. This chapter argues for the possibility of an 'active aesthetic': recognising that meaning happens in the act of performance rather than in the text or in the construction of intertextual relationships. The work of Experience Vocal Dance Company, and the challenges that the company faces in creating original material within a new genre of Vocal Dance, are used to illuminate this 'active aesthetic' and highlight the issues posed by moving beyond current notions of disciplinarily.
