In the contexts of European performance arts in particular, choreography as a term and as a field of activity has shifted radically since the 1990s. Stable and historical definitions of choreography, as inscriptions of movement characterized through compositional approaches to bodily movement in time and space, have moved towards choreographic approaches that question such normative relationships between movement, composition and the production of dance, and expand the notion of choreography as an art that includes a wider range of conceptual tools, materials and strategies. A shift towards the conceptualization of choreography in terms other than or additional to the arrangement of bodily movement has produced a range of performance work that suggests that choreography is a field of contemporary arts practice that provides not only vectors for new forms of trans-disciplinary arts research but also a locus for questioning the orthodoxies of contemporary art work and practice. Through this work choreography can now be seen to invoke, recuperate and incorporate other forms of cultural practice (both historical and contemporary).
