IDOCDE (International Documentation of Contemporary Dance Education) invites contemporary dance practitioners, dance and movement educators, researchers, theoreticians and other practitioners contributing to the field to submit proposals for the 5th IDOCDE Symposium.
The theme of the event is why compromise. mind the dance. The aim of this year is to ask professionals to add an ourward-looking reflection whilst asking the questions: What is my practice actually doing to the world? How are my pedagogic and artistic decisions shaping the world of others? What is the effect on the decisions I am not making?
The Symposium will take place from 28 to 30 July at ImPulsTanz Vienna International Dance Festival.
All practical or theoretical proposals centered on aspects of teaching, researching or practicing dance, in relation to the proposed theme, are being considered. Formats might range from teaching a class and sharing reflections, hosting a lecture demonstration, talk or discussion, to more uncommon or experimental formats, or anything in between.
The deadline to submit proposals is 15 February 2017.
The IDOCDE symposium is part of the EU program REFLEX EUROPE, which researches and uses documentation as a tool for reflection in order to improve the teaching and to increase the impact on the learners in contemporary dance.
