Expanding Notions;
Dance/Practice/Research/Method

12th international NOFOD Conference

Conference website

The realm of dance practice and research manifests itself in multiple ways. Within dance studies as an interdisciplinary field, the notions of dance, practice and research are constantly challenged – leading to fundamental questions such as: what is practice and what is knowledge? This, in turn, may open up new methodological questions. Possibilities and connections are created between methods in practice and methods in research, in ways that lead us to revisit and revise the concept of method as such, and as a consequence question different approaches to knowledge. This conference addressed the multiple understandings of methodologies in dance practice and research, in order to contest pre-conceived conceptions of methods and revise our understanding of doing and knowing.

Themes:

  • the expanded notions of dance/practice/research/method
  • changing methods of dance practices
  • pedagogical methods and challenges
  • choreographic methods and practices
  • the practice of research methods
  • methodological questions and challenges in an expanded landscape of dance practice and research
  • the consequences of these changes and challenges in terms of the understanding of knowledge
