Abstract

The creation of "Done Not Finished" is part of practice-led research on the concept of time through the method of dance-making. Dance-making can be thought of as performative research in the sense that it is expressed in non-numerical data. Instead it encompasses material forms of practice, music and sound, space and time, and takes into account both the perspectives of the researcher and collaborative inquiry. This piece evolved over a year's time- going through multiple casts, performance settings and audiences, and various stakeholders. While the last performance was cancelled, this piece emphasizes the importance of process over product.
