15th NOFOD CONFERENCE
The Danish National School of Performing Arts, COPENHAGEN 17.-20.6.2021
Moving, relating, commanding:
Choreographies for bodies, identities and ecologies
In the 15. NOFOD conference we want to address choreography’s acute cultural and sociopolitical relevance in the face of worldwide protesting and a global pandemic. Choreography
holds a capacity to exert and impose power, but also to identify, investigate and undermine it.
As “a plan or orchestration of bodies in motion,” choreography provides knowledge about
movement and its regulation: how moving bodies are arranged, fixed, ordered and
manipulated.1 At the same time, choreographic knowledge enables analyses of such regulation
and its embodied defiance.
