João Fiadeiro, ARC Creative Specialist-in-Residence

ARC’s first Creative Specialist was Portuguese choreographer and researcher João Fiadeiro.  Fiadeiro’s method of “real-time composition” focuses on process rather than product, transforming movement into a theoretical-practical tool and platform to understand and rethink decision, representation, and cooperation, both in art and in life. For the past five years, he has been using this method as a research practice to explore the issues of pre-action, emergency, and decision, thereby broadening its scope to incorporate scientific fields such as anthropology, neurobiology, economics, complex system sciences, and cognitive science. Fiadeiro will do a performance lecture, “The Anatomy of a Decision”, that will explore this method, a transdisciplinary workshop, where faculty are invited to participate in his method and a work-in-progress where he will perform using the real-time composition method in response to the architectural space of The Commons.
