Abstract

Vass-Rhee turns towards William Forsythe’s reengagement in the 2011 work Whole in the Head with the phrase known as “Tuna,” which had served in 1986 as a foundation upon which to explore the affordances of improvising with set choreography. Applying Dynamical Systems Theory, Vass-Rhee shows how the resulting work repurposed the memory of “Tuna” to both produce new choreography and scaffold expertise amongst expert improvisers.
