Abstract or Description:

This performance/event was a praxic collaboration where the participants are attempting to explore, understand, question and map the entangled ways and places of artist teacher and it is the mapping of these intra-actions, the action between, that matters. This praxis is conceived as poietic in that it is flexible, dynamic and open, continually becoming and not a thing, object or outcome but spaces of possibilities and potential and is underpinned by new materialist scholarship after Barad (2007) Braidotti (2000) and Barrett and Bolt (2012). The materiality in this praxic-based research is emphasised and also an embodied, affective, relational understanding of the praxic-research process. Through embodied methodologies we are exploring, questioning and attempting to map the practices of bodies with matter and learn who we are, where we are and also how we are as artist teachers. The focus is not on individuals’ practices but the relationalities of learning, bodies- sensation and memory; to become conscious of our ways, materials and spaces- to make the time and the place for a deeper critical collaborative potentially artistic and pedagogic engagement.
