A project funded by Arts Council of England and the AHRC under the art and science research fellowships programme, this involved two choreographers, ten dancers, six psychologists and neuroscientists, a film-maker and an anthropologist working together to discover the cognitive grounding of movement and choreographic practice at Random Dance Company.

The project contributed to development of the Random Dance production AtaXia

Subsequent Crucible research engagement with Random Dance R-Research has included the Choreographic Language Agent project.
