choreo | graphy within practice
choreo | graphy within practice, presented in collaboration with Stockholm University of the Arts, is an opportunity to open up and reflect together on and through Eleanor Bauer’s artistic-practice based research as a doctoral candidate in choreography. Joined by experts from the fields of dance, choreography, and writing, Bauer will share her choreographic practice research in practice-based conversations with her interlocutors (Jennifer Lacey and Bronwyn Bailey-Charteris). The week prior, October 1-3 at Dansenshus, Bauer will present the latest iteration of her ongoing choreographic research as it has been presented over the years under the title A lot of moving parts. Attendees of the choreo | graphy within practice seminar are warmly welcomed but not obliged to attend also the A lot of moving parts VII (Sleeping Giant Dreams) performances.

- About Eleanor Bauer
Eleanor Bauer is a performer and choreographer working at the intersections of dance, writing, and music. Her work is a profound synthesis of embodied intelligences, bound in her practice of making sense with the senses in performance. From solos to talk shows to large ensemble pieces, her versatile works range in scale, media, and genre traversing categories of performance with wit, humor, and aplomb.
Originally from Santa Fe, New Mexico, Bauer is currently based in Stockholm where she is a PhD candidate in Choreography at Stockholm University of the Arts. She created performances via GoodMove vzw, a production structure she initiated for collaborations in Brussels, from 2007-2019, and was artist in residence at Kaaitheater in Brussels from 2013-2016. Together with Ellen Söderhult and Alice Chauchat, Bauer co-founded the open-source format for exchange of practices in the performing arts called Nobody’s Business in 2015 (www.nobodysbusiness.info), which has since been adapted by myriad practitioners and local organizers worldwide. Bauer continues to teach, write, lecture, and co-create contexts for exchange of knowledge in the arts, including PROTO TALKS and A class for a cause (https://bit.ly/aClassforaCause).
Bauer has worked as a performer with, among others, choreographers Xavier Le Roy, Boris Charmatz, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker/Rosas, Trisha Brown, David Zambrano, Mette Ingvartsen, Veli Lehtovaara, Karinne Keithley, Ivy Baldwin, and Chris Yon. She has collaborated as a choreographer and performer with visual artists Matthew Barney, and Every Ocean Hughes/Emily Roysdon. She has performed or collaborated with music groups such as Ictus contemporary music ensemble, The Knife (leading Miguel Gutierrez’s Deep Aerobics for the Shaking The Habitual/Shaken Up tour), and WATT clarinet ensemble.
Bauer’s primary collaborator in music since 2004 is Chris Peck (www.intermittentmusic.com) with whom she has created numerous performances ranging from an remote Mail-art & interdisciplinary performance collaboration with Jon Moniaci, Beth Gill, and Chase Granoff called ”<3 The Band” to several large scale and touring theatrical, musical, and dance pieces over the years. Together they write songs and transport, transpose, or trans-muddle structures and ideas between different media in a strongly intuitive practice they call ”compostition” (compost, composition, and superstition).
Bauer choreographed a collaboration between Swedish rap artist Yung Lean and the Swedish dance company Cullberg called NEAR, which premiered in 2018 at Gothenburg’s Way Out West music festival and Stockolm’s Dramaten Theater. In Spring 2020, Bauer collaborated with Danish pop artist Lydmor and Corpus dance company at Copenhagen’s Danish Royal Theater for an original collaboration entitled SENSUALITY HAPPENS, slated to appear also at Denmark’s renowned Roskilde music festival, currently suspended until further notice due to Coronavirus.
Other ongoing collaborations include a project with Nora dance company in London, working title Nora (the many), and a film and dance artistic research collaboration with Swedish filmmaker/director and fellow PhD candidate at SKH named Mia Engberg
