The IDOCDE symposium and residency series is dedicated to the artistic and pedagogic practices of contemporary dance. Past editions have focused on artistic documentation, collaborative processes, and their political and educational implications.
This year we aim to create a space for becoming – a portal for somatic artmaking. The purpose of the gathering is to feed-forward the rethinking of the value and usage of somatic work in an artistic, pedagogic, and socio-political context. Integrative, intergenerational, recontextualizing.
