Tradition, Evolution and Diversity – Share Your Legacy (Dec 2018)

In this month's Editorial, John Taylor reflects on the historicity of dancing, and the notion of contemporaniety––as contextualised by a specific history. John turns to The Legacy Project––"[the] platform in which we can share what it means to be a contemporary dancer and dance teacher and learn to appreciate how the very concept of contemporary is dependent upon the context in which [it has] developed"––with a call to action, asking {us} to contribute; and by contributing "explore and share our global community and celebrate its diversity".


The Legacy Project stands for a publicly available collection of video documents made by individual participants, often registered IDOCDE users. The Legacy Project is a community driven project. Everyone is welcome to contribute to The Legacy Project.

More updates regarding The Legacy Project are due January.


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.
