Description

The distributed cognitive ecologies of collaborative embodied skill

   

Organised by John Sutton (Macquarie)

This workshop addresses relations between individuals, groups, and environments across performance forms and contexts. What do individuals bring to and do in collaborative embodied performance? How do group members with distinct capacities complement each other in skilled action? Are cues to collaborative embodied skill distributed across larger cognitive ecologies, and how are they reliably accessed? What forms of breakdown and repair reveal the fragility and the resilience of collaborative skills?
