Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to present an exploratory approach to the development of inter- disciplinary art and performance. The creative process described here is designed to mimic the concept of “flocking”, in which a group of dancers generate movement intuitively and synchronously without ever defining a leader. The goal is to develop a pre-meditated process that can recreate this sense of unity and cohesion in a creative context spanning multiple disciplines. Key elements of this process are collaborative engagement, communication, and play. These concepts have been put into practice by a collective of artists who joined together to create a large-scale interdisciplinary work. The ideas put forth in this paper are not final, but rather exist as part of a continuously evolving body of research and creative investigation. The interdisciplinary project referenced in this paper is in itself a work in progress and w arrants further documentation upon completion.
