In this thesis, I aim to construct an alternative dance epistemology and capture of an image of cyborg dancing. Tracking the history of Western dance and analyzing Haraway’s critique of Marxist and Radical feminist’s political contstruction, I aim to explore how postmodernism as a cultural dominant could be a common ground for the analysis for the transition from uniform, organic and wholistic humans to heterogenous, autonomous and hybrid cyborg organisms. Throughout pursuing practise based research and autoethnography, I aim to speculate / fictionalize a cyborgian future of the essential elements and subjects of dance around this speculated alternative dance epistemology.
