    Researching (in/as) Motion

    Research intensives for artistic researchers and
    doctoral candidates
     in dance and body-based performance

     March 19th - 23rd  2018
    (Stockholm University of the Arts / Weld, SE)

    +

    June 25th – 29th 2018
    (University of Chichester, UK)

    For additional information, view the PDF here.

    Curated as part of ‘Artistic Doctorates in Europe: Dance and Performance’ (ADiE) project these intensive workshops are offered for movement and performing arts researchers.

    The intensives at Stockholm University of the Arts /Weld (SE) and University of Chichester (UK) will enable you to develop, reflect on and share your own artistic research with an international group of participants and tutors. The weeks will offer opportunities to experience productive and meaningful research methods that are suitable to the fluid, increasingly interdisciplinary and global nature of creative research environments.

    Testing out embodied and somatic research methodologies that have been developed at the intersection of cultural and academic sectors, the intensives will provide opportunities to:

    • ·      research from/in embodied practice
    • ·      develop language/writing strategies
    • ·      place ‘composition’/ ‘the choreographic’ in research
    • ·      experience creative feedback / articulation strategies
    • ·      consider artistic research in relation to audiences
    • ·      reflect on research in the public realm (including discussions with arts/dance organisations and promoters.)

    Each intensive is also informed by its location and participants will be invited to engage with locally based artists and promoters. Facilitated by a group of leading artistic researchers / academics from across the UK and Scandinavia, the teaching team includes: Prof Rebecca Hilton, in collaboration with Anna Koch and Dr Camilla Damkjaer (SE), and Prof Jane Bacon, Prof Vida Midgelow, Dr Lee Miller, Dr Bob Whalley  and Dance4 Artistic Director Paul Russ (UK), amongst others (full details will be on the website).

    Indicative sessions include: “Daily morning practice”, “Walking and Talking Practice”, the “Techo Somatics Dance Party”, “Creative Articulations Process work (CAP)", “Subjectivity and ‘thing’ness’”, “Embodied awareness and creative languaging”, “Documentation and the public realm”, plus daily research presentations by leading movement researchers.

    The weeks will also be documented by ADiE such that they will, in turn, help provide examples of artistic research in process as part of an online resource for future doctoral candidates working in dance and performance.  

    The intensives are free – made possible by Erasmus Plus Support

    How to apply:

    The intensives are designed as a pair and are for researchers / doctoral candidates in dance, choreography and other body-based performance practices.

    DISCO! An Interdisciplinary Conference
    University of Sussex
    21-23 June 2018

    From its origins as a New York City subculture amongst gay, black and Latino/Latina practitioners, and its transition into the mainstream, to its subsequent lives across international scenes, disco poses pivotal questions about the entanglements of art, industry, identity, and community. Disco is the site of many significant and lasting debates in popular culture, including those surrounding the figures of the DJ and the diva, the status and significance of dancing bodies, the tension between what is authentic and what is synthetic, and the historic maligning of society’s others.

    This major interdisciplinary international conference aims to examine and expand these debates. We therefore invite researchers from a range of academic backgrounds to re/consider disco cultures in their shifting historic and social contexts. We hope to explore disco as a tentacular phenomenon that reaches across multiple sites of production and consumption, from music and dance to fashion and film.

    Keynote Presentations by:

    Melissa Blanco Borelli (Royal Holloway, University of London)

    Tim Lawrence (University of East London).

    Potential points of entry:

    Disco as interdiscipline: music, dance, film, fashion, culture, fandom

    Disco as place: Disco reaches beyond its NYC origins. How has disco travelled? What are its different geographic and cultural contexts?

    Disco as space: What kinds of spaces are explored by disco - its dancefloors, its clubs, its streets, its towns?

    Disco as identity: Disco’s queerness, disco’s blackness, disco’s Latino/a-ness, disco’s women. Who made disco and for whom was it made? What other disco populations exist out there today? Considering disco’s appropriation by white-dominated culture.

    Disco as history: Disco has outlasted its heyday in the 1970s. What were its historical roots and what have been (and will be) its futures?

    Disco as affect: sweat, strobe, glitter, ecstasy, sex, stamina

    Death to disco: How has disco been attacked? Exploring backlash, homophobia, racism, and rockism

    We welcome proposals for conference papers of 20 minutes but also for pre-formed panels, roundtable discussions, or formats that allow for the presentation of praxis (installations, lecture performances, for instance).

    Please send a 300-word abstract, along with a short biography and indication of the format of your proposed presentation to: disco@sussex.ac.uk by Friday 2 March 2018.

    Organisers:

    Mimi Haddon (Lecturer in Music, School of Media, Film and Music)

    Michael Lawrence (Reader in Film Studies, School of Media, Film and Music)

    Arabella Stanger (Lecturer in Drama: Theatre and Performance, School of English)

    I have recently launched my history of Limbs Dance Company to commemorate 40 years since its founding. With the advent of Limbs in 1977, the language of movement in New Zealand changed inextricably, expanding and exploding the definition of dance from this small South Pacific nation. Fundamentally, the founding members of Limbs believed that dance could reflect common human issues and emotions and was capable of touching people from all walks of life. With this belief, they made dances that were simultaneously relevant, challenging, sexy, serious, fun and exciting. Limbs dances both reflected and shaped the zeitgeist of 1970 - 1980s New Zealand. Such a wide array of dances not only entertained and excited the general public, but also inspired other choreographers and artists from different fields to explore their own artistic voices. Spanning years of political protests and economic reforms, the works that Limbs presented in this time period and their performance settings - large music festivals, prisons and opera houses - reflect the changing nature of New Zealand society.
