(p.240) Chapter 13 The ‘Minor’ Arithmetic of Rhythm: Imagining Digital Technologies for Dance
Deleuze and Performance

Stamatia Portanova

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter focuses on the so-called arithmetic of rhythm and the digital technologies for dance. It discusses dancer and choreographer Merce Cunningham's view that choreography can and should follow, rather than dictate, movement. It explores how dance can recruit choreographic software to allow it take flight from its spatio-temporal stratification using Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari's concept of rhythm and their distinction between numbered and numbering number.

Keywords:   arithmetic of rhythm, dance, digital technologies, Merce Cunningham, choreography, choreographic software, spatio-temporal stratification, Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari, number
