Situated Knowledge, Transmissions of Practice and Parasitic Endeavors 

Jessica Foley, Vicky Hunter, Karolina Kucia, Helen Palmer

This paper presents an exchange between four practitioners from distinct disciplines of site dance, performance art, philosophy, and experimental writing and pedagogy. It presents responses to provocations that position these practices as containers of Situated Knowledge. Drawing on practical inquiry it illustrates particular practices and approaches to the transmission and reception of practical knowledge, and employs the notion of ‘parasitic endeavor’ as a lens to facilitate discussion of how disciplinary specific practices and emerging knowledges might traverse from one discipline to another. The practitioners include Jessica Foley, Karolina Kucia, Helen Palmer and Vicky Hunter.
