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

The call for this event is now closed although some events will be open to the public – download full schedule:


This week-long intensive workshop is offered for movement and performing arts researchers. The first of this two part series takes place on: March 19th – 23rd 2018 (Stockholm University of the Arts, SE) (Week One)

The two intensives will enable you to develop your practice and enhance your methodological approach alongside an international group of participants.

The intensives will provide opportunities to focus on:

  • researching from/in embodied practice
  • developing language/writing strategies
  • the place of ‘composition’ / the ‘choreographic’ in research
  • creative feedback / articulation strategies
  • artistic research and audiences / entering the public realm (including discussions with arts/dance organisations and promoters.)

The two weeks (which can be taken separately), will be based upon our ADiE research into the training / methodological needs of artistic candidates. The intensives will thereby explore how embodied explorative methods in performance and dance are part of research methodologies and what this means in practice.  This testing out of new approaches to embodied and somatic research methodologies will, in turn, help create an online resource for future doctoral candidates working in dance and performance.

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, Dr Bob Whalley and Dance4 Artistic Director Paul Russ (UK), amongst others.

Indicative sessions include: “Daily morning practice”, “Walking and Talking Practice”, the “Techno Somatics Dance Party”, “Creative Articulations Process work (CAP), “Subjectivity and ‘thing’ness’”, “Embodied awareness and creative languaging”, “Documentation and the public realm”, plus daily research presentations by leading movement researchers.

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
