WRITING IN THE MOMENT - a dialogue between two different artistic research practices. Two projects about writing in the moment are put into dialogue. Lucy Lyon’s (GB) research into the activity of drawing as a participatory phenomenological activity and Cecilia Lagerström’s (SE) research on writing from the moment of creating physical performance material, are interconnected. Each project is presented briefly and is then set in motion in a joint dialogue. CECILIA LAGERSTRÖM: WRITING FROM THE THEATRE STUDIO IN THE MOMENT. I have just started a project, together with my collaborating partner actress Helena Kågemark, which concerns writing from the theatre studio in the moment. The purpose of this project is to create a theatre text and a performance based on physical acting improvisation, where the connection between the physical and the linguistic is explored. The words are born out of the movements, the action emerges out of the words, or is there a gap between language and body? The link between body and language, structure and improvisation, is investigated. In our theatre practice we construct ideas, content and form from what occurs during the process, in physical improvisations. In this project we want to develop an associative methodology for writing which is similar to - and in direct dialogue with - our theatre work. This project is a part of our more extensive project on Walking.
