Abstract

This chapter draws from a 12 year collaboration between an architecture educator and theorist, and dance educator and artist. The collaboration resulted in a series of workshops, which use the processes of dance to develop an understanding that is located somewhere between the two disciplines. This chapter draws from architectural theory in conjunction with references to the collaborative work in order to theorize a relationship between architecture and dance. The workshop structure is presented and critically reflected upon as part of the output of the collaboration. The chapter concludes by locating architecture and dance, which are normally separated by distinct ontologies, as part of the same continuum. The collaboration is presented as an attempt to develop a new trans-ontology that is between architecture and dance.
