"The most common form that recording takes in my case is in writing. But... why write down anything?
Writing is evocative, rather than definitive. It leaves room for, even requires, the imagination and participation of the reader.
Writing is also a self-educational tool. When you write something down, you may notice what you are missing in your own understanding, and also see how your understanding evolves over time. So even without a reader, writing is valuable in itself.

Writing is a way to announce and transmit ideas for re-elaboration and further expansion to those who are far away, or those who come after. The ingenious aspect of written laguages is not merely their capacity for precision and accuracy, but in their capacity for varying degrees of interpretable vagueness: metaphor, inference, allusion and ambiguity. The freedom to infer represents an equal freedom to interpret, invent, to add or subtract to the description. We can lose our fear of a language when we are allowed to play with it, to see it as a way to create context for creativity and creative sharing." - Frey Faust

 

 

REFLEX Europe explores the practice of documentation and how it can be utilized in a reflective process in teaching. In both IDOCDE and LEAP the participants noticed that documentation has the potential to feed back into the teaching of dance, improving the quality of the teaching, deepening historical connections and developing the analytical and creative potential of the teacher.

REFLEX Europe researches multi-modal documentation practices and creates the REFLEX tool & guide consisting of a manual and a workshop to facilitate the learning process through documentation.
