Dancing To Silence: Becoming 'Ear-Body'
Dance and music commonly come hand in hand, but many professional dancers prefer dancing to silence. Why is that?

please note that the content of the IDOCDE website is made almost entirely by the members of the IDOCDE community.

IDOCDE first emerged from the need expressed by the members of the community to make place for the sharing of observations, reflections, and, indeed, the sharing of evidence of embodied knowledge within the professional realm, without the contribution having to be evaluated against strict Cartesian standards in the process. this, of course, was articulated in lieu of the hypothesis according to which if–to do research–we’re only ever required to express ourselves “scientifically," as long as that “science" is qualitatively defined by objective, binary, impersonal values, it will keep preventing our researchers from successfully qualifying “experience" and "experiencing" as a credible research method.
as a result, we might never learn–as a community, as a society–how to take each other seriously, as long as one of us keeps drawing when they’re supposed to be writing, singing when they’re supposed to be measuring, dancing when they’re supposed to be doing theoretical mathematics, crying when they’re supposed to be speaking.

all this to say that your contribution to IDOCDE–whatever form it might take–functions to enrich and complexify all of our member's understanding and experiencing of dancing, somatics, pedagogy, artistry, research, and life in general. and for that, we thank you.
