Thinking Brains and Bodies at the Adelaide Festival of Ideas

Scott deLahunta will be presenting with David Kirsch, James Leach and Kate Stevens at The Adelaide Festival of Ideas 2016 talking about “Thinking Brains and Bodies” 

Supported by an Arc Linkage Project  this three year project (due to conclude next year) aims  to conduct empirical studies of the nature of thinking in dance, by investigating creative processes, memory and expertise using complementary quantitative and qualitative methods- for example, experimental, interview and video techniques.

Industry partner, Australian Dance Theatre are centrally and collaboratively involved in this exploration of process and discovery. The goal is to develop new models of embodied and distributed thinking, and explore unique methods for collaborative interdisciplinary research.

The Adelaide Festival of Ideas is running from Friday 21st of October until Sunday 23rd of October.
