One set of creative thinking tools

FRONT invited five leading US-based choreographers to reformat a period of artistic creation past into a series of questions now. The result is a publication with the spirit of a toolbox, through the lens of contemporary dance.

Poets, body-based creatives, lateral thinkers, sacred typographers and curious folk—let’s generate.

Print edition opening letter

FRONT Ed. 05 reformats performance into questions. The choreographers in this edition were invited to revisit a period of artistic creation past and transform it into a series of questions now.

Thanks to Everybodys Toolbox, an online resource primarily active between 2005–2011, whose DEVIATION and FORMATTING TOOL served as a key reference: The idea with the formatting tool is that through actually displacing the production of work to a different media one can reach a different understanding of ideas which then again can be re-adapted to the media that one is finally interested in using.
