Description

A weekend of research presentations and workshops creating dynamic exchanges about and through social dance practice.

This two-day colloquium, open to the public, closely examines dances of togetherness, or “together dancing,” asking how connections and divisions between people and groups can work as both lens and method for engaging interdisciplinary inquiry. We consider “social dance” less as a fixed category than a term that describes how people learn to relate in and through movement. We bring together six dance scholar/practitioners across disciplines for presentations, dance workshops, and conversations that address the themes of crossing, improvisation and sociality.

See presenters and tentative schedule on the colloquium website. Free registration available in January 2018.
