Abstract:

'White Out Conditions' is a practice-based research project looking at issues of 'authorship, quotation and plagiarism' in the creation of choreographic work. It has been funded by the Arts Council and the government's Department for Work and Pensions, and it is supported by Wakefield, Hull and York City Councils, York St John University and Leeds Metropolitan University. The project has involved five residencies in the North of England (where academics and artists have been invited into the studio to discuss the relationship between 'the original', 'copy' and 'reference' in choreographic creation), followed by performances in Selby, Wakefield, Leeds and Hull. In today's world, intellectual property and the protection of intellectual capital are central to the ways in which knowledge is created and disseminated. However, contemporary academia is also dominated by theoretical discourses critiquing notions of 'originality' and 'authorship', and instead promoting 'intertextuality' and poststructuralist notions of knowledge. It is at the centre of this schizophrenic conjuncture that this project proposes to locate itself. A clearer picture of the project's contribution to knowledge is expected to emerge once it concludes (2008). As a practice-based research project, 'White Out Conditions' employs methodologies of investigating a choreographic problem through the process of creating a choreographic work. The project wavers between being at times an application of theory, and at other times creating an interweaving of theory and practice. Ultimately, the outcomes of this investigation are communicated through its different research outputs: residencies, performances of the choreographic work, post-performance discussions and written articles.
