In this month's Editorial, the name of the upcoming IDOCDE Symposium, our 7th, is officially announced. Following the short introduction to the Symposium's topic is a contemplative reflection, written by Eszter Gál. Eszter shares a poetic meditation on the notion of experience, and time; consciousness, human-ness, and (the) nature (of it all).

With the IDOCDE Editorials we wish to bring you the most recent updates and news from across Europe on a monthly basis. Writers of the Editorials are MINDTHEDANCE researchers coming from IDOCDE's partner-institutions and Team IDOCDE aka Staff Members. Each month a different person takes the initiative to write about the state of their research, most recent ongoings in their homelands relating to any topic that might influence the life of a dancer. These might include updates regarding the socio-economic, or political climate, institutional or freelance opportunities or the lack thereof, etc. We hope you'll find your way to the IDOCDE Editorial.
