n + n corsino have produced two original new works on the relationships between calligraphy and choreography: Bangalore Fictions (India, 2013) and Signs (China, 2014).
They concern the animal and plant origins of the calligraphic line as a stylisation of forms in movement: the gesture forms a sign.
Korean calligraphy deconstructed Chinese calligraphy in the 15th century.
It recomposed itself as an alphabet, and its written form became geometric.
It underwent development described as scientific.
In Between the Lines, a dance is invented as a language and vice versa.
This original new work associates Korean and French artists in residence in SCENE44
