    Abstract:
    Movement is brimming with questions. Movement asks questions, it reacts to questions, it can repeat and retain questions. The only thing it persistently avoids is answering questions. Choreography navigates by questions and with questions. It modulates movement’s immanent force, its questionness: its where-ness, its who-ness, its how- ness. By articulating questions, choreography produces—and relates to—multiple movements: the technique of questioning is relational and transversal, spanning across different movements. How do the techniques of questioning feed problems from one event to another? How does the immediating power of choreography work?
