When we were about to invite artistic researcher for Issue 0 my thought immediately went to Chrysa Parkinson and her research project Documenting Experiential Authorship. The project is in itself moving the boundaries within the field of research in dance. It puts the dancers practice at stake by discussing authorship and it challenges the doing in the actual here and now in relation to memory-archive and place-context. In the exposition Chrysa created for Issue 0 we move through a flow of images, words, text and voice.
