This year’s Modes of Capture Symposium will build on the success of the 2019 symposium held at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance as part of the IntraSpaces project. Modes of Capture 2020 will explore how dance artists exchange knowledge, practices and experiences across networks of relationships that span time and space.
How do we embody and transmit movement legacies from dancer to dancer and from generation to generation? How are we currently extending and expanding our practices through encounters enabled by travel, residencies and international/interdisciplinary projects? How might we reimagine ways of artistic exchange in an uncertain future where international travel may become increasingly restricted due to shifting borders, climate change and other global issues?
This full-day symposium will bring together dance artists, academics and dance advocates in a series of talks, workshops and informal performances. Keynote by Rebecca Hilton, former dancer with Stephen Petronio, Michael Clark and Jennifer Monson, and currently a professor of choreography at Stockholm University of the Arts.
