Researching (in/as) Motion -- CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS

"Researching (in/as) Motion"

Research intensives for artistic researchers and doctoral candidates in dance and body based performance.

March 19th - 23rd 2018 (Stockholm University of the Arts, SE)


June 25th – 29th 2018 (University of Chichester, UK)

Curated as part of ‘Artistic Doctorates in Europe: Dance and Performance’ (ADiE) project these intensive workshops are offered for movement and performing arts researchers.

The intensives will enable you to develop, reflect upon and share your own artistic research with an international group of participants and tutors. The weeks will offer opportunities to experience productive and meaningful research methods that are suitable to the fluid, increasingly interdisciplinary and global nature of creative research environments.

Testing out embodied and somatic research methodologies that have been developed at the intersection of cultural and academic sectors, the intensives will provide opportunities to:

· research from/in embodied practice

· develop language/writing strategies

· place ‘composition’/ ‘the choreographic’ in research

· experience creative feedback / articulation strategies

· consider artistic research in relation to audiences

· reflect on research in the public realm (including discussions with arts/dance organisations and promoters.)

Each intensive is also informed by its location and participants will be invited to engage with locally based artists and promoters. Facilitated by a group of leading artistic researchers / academics from across the UK and Scandinavia, the teaching team includes: Prof Rebecca Hilton, in collaboration with Anna Koch and Dr Camilla Damkjaer (SE) and Prof Jane Bacon, Prof Vida Midgelow, Dr Lee Miller and Dr Bob Whalley (UK), amongst others.

The weeks will also be documented by ADiE such that they will, in turn, help provide examples of artistic research in process as part of an online resource for future doctoral candidates working in dance and performance.

The intensives are free – made possible by Erasmus Plus Support
