Bora Bora together with dance dramaturg Thomas Schaupp are inviting you to join a hands-on public symposia on “Contextualizing Dance – Dance Dramaturgy as a practice of interlinking Art with the Society” happening 13th and 14th of December 2019 at Bora Bora in Aarhus, Denmark.
Dance dramaturgy as a practice interlinking Art with Society
What can dramaturgy do for the context of a choreography and how does it do that?
We can observe a growing interest in artistic approaches to explore new modes of working on and in relation to the society, especially in dance and movement-based forms of art. Also therefore it seems, the general interest in Dance Dramaturgy, considered as a practice of interlinking art and society, has heightened in the last few years, not least in Denmark and Scandinavia. It is increasingly being discussed in artistic practices, in academic contexts as well as in conversations with the audience.
Together with choreographers, dramaturgs, critics, academics and producers Bora Bora would like to take a look at the role of dance dramaturgy as a practice of contextualization. During the symposium, we will explore the tools that it can provide for artistic practices:
Contributions will be made by:
Bára Sigfúsdóttir, Fabio Liberti, Merel Heering, Andreas Constantinou, Danjel Andersson (Dansehallerne, EDN member), Synne Berndt, Tina Tarpgaard, Peter M. Boenisch, Pia Krämer (EDN president), Monna Dithmer, Jesper de Neergaard (Bora Bora, EDN member) and Annette van Zwoll (EDN contributor).

Over the course of the summer, EDN member Lokomotiva (North Macedonia) conducted the first edition of its International Summer School. We highly recommend diving in the resources made available online by Lokomotiva to reflect on contemporary practices of performing arts in relation to activism, social movements and self-organization.More
