Game Structures & Situations- emergence of new modes of artistic creation and writing tecniques for postdigital performances, through practice-as-research methodologies

Mediatised, postdigital contemporary performances claim for new kinds of writing techniques and texts that integrate multiple languages, artistic crossings and interceptions with new technologies and scientific knowledge (Causey, 2016; Morris & Swiss, 2006; Cubitt, 1998). Arte Total- a Portuguese artistic structure – is focused in exploring new modes of artistic creation, involving digital technologies and alternative modes of writing for performance, through practice-as-research methodologies (Nelson, 2006). We propose to describe, illustrate and analyse critically the use of these methodologies and mediaturgies (Marranca, 2010) in a commented live demonstration/ workshop of these methodological approaches for artistic creation and research. The team of creators of diverse artistic and scientist origins, base their artistic research and aesthetics is Nietzschean and Deleuzean concepts of posthuman subjectivities, and are inspired by Lacanian psychological linguistic approach. This particular research aims to explore the link between psychomotor processes of thought, writing and movement. Each of these processes are actions involving more or less visible cognitive and physical components. The underlying search is to know how a creative dance process can be translated/ transformed into writing and thought, and its opposite: how writing and thought can be translated into creative dance. How they influence each other?
