De-normalising Bodies, Rehearsing Citizenship
Create, the EU Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP), Dublin Dance Festival and Dance Limerick are delighted to team up to support a research residency focusing on socially engaged dance by the distinguished German dramaturge, curator, writer and researcher Sandra Noeth. During a week-long residency with Dance Limerick and Dublin Dance Festival, Noeth aims to open up new ideas and prompt critical debate around collective and co-creative relationships between dance and its social and political environments. Her explorations and collaborations will be grounded in her practice as a dramaturge and her ongoing research on bodies in bordering situations and bodies subjected to structural or systematic violence.
Arising from this residency, Noeth will lead a public panel discussion sharing models and examples that connect and expand on the following questions: how might physical and choreographic strategies represent, implement, legitimise and rehearse social and political action? In this time of conflict how do empathy, presence, improvisation or compositions inform the experience of borders? Noeth will be joined by a panel of arts practitioners and cultural commentators.
