Inventing Futures

Inventing Futures: Doing and thinking artistic research with(in) the Master of Choreography Programme of ArtEZ
Book design
Published by ArtEZ Press
170 x 240 mm, paperback, 176 pp.


Inventing Futures celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Master of Choreography programme of the ArtEZ School of Dance. The book is a collage of essays and creative writing, and a score or a choreography in itself, coming to life through its encounter with the reader. Inventing Futures consists of five clusters reflecting upon a central or nodal notation: latency, constraint, collaboration, failure and trust.
