Creative Articulations Process (CAP) is a model and an approach to mentoring and guiding artists/practitioners/scholars in creative process. The model, and accompanying strategies, are a reflexive process that aim to ‘give voice’ to artistic practice. We have developed this model over a period of about fifteen years in the Choreographic Lab (and also prior to this as part of our teaching in Higher Education). We are committed to facilitating artists to become fluent in and about the dancing and dance making processes that are usually considered to be hidden or ‘lost’ as physical, emotional, intuitive and perhaps even ineffable activities.
This model began life during 2005 – 2008, with generous support from Arts Council England (see Archive 2005-2008) when we worked to develop particular strategies for bringing dance and movement based performance into language. Since this time we have made CAP available in a published form and offered workshops / intensives for artist researchers to explore this process.
