9th IDOCDE symposium


practical and tactical applications in taking care of mortal dancing

July 26 - August 1, 2021: IDOCDE residency + symposium,

online and offline

“Why is measure of love loss?” writes Jeanette Winterson in Written on the Body. Reversing Winterson’s equation, we ask: “Why is the measure of loss love?”

The 2021 IDOCDE symposium is imagined as a celebration of everything, including loss + love, that has helped us continue practicing dancing since the onset of the global pandemic.

the call for contributions to the symposium and the application to the residency, including the detailed descriptions of the symposium and residency formats will be released soon!

Mind the Dance

MIND THE DANCE is a collection of essays, manuals, scores, exercises, and maps; giving voice to a multitude of stances, ideas, and applications in and around documenting movement. It aims to motivate and empower the reader-teacher-artist to use creative documenting to enhance their teaching and artistic practice.
