game intelligence

“For me the notion of ‘game intelligence’ is so important. It’s
simple, it basically means knowing how to associate with other
players. The rest follows, the physical aspects, the technical
aspects. But understanding the game, that is what is most important.”

?????Xabi Alonso, Spanish Football team
The Sunday Times, 4 July 2010

I was thinking, as I read Alonso’s very considered and provocative
thinking about the state of football in England, that this comment ???
about how it is that we associate with others ?????is fundamental to
collaborative/devising performance processes. The how of the dancing
is less important.

  1. couldn’t agree with you more. or maybe i could.this is definitely true of my experiences in group performance improvisation. if you can’t play the game there is just too much dissonance that makes for a lack of cohesion. of course that’s not to say making art is just about game play… 😉
