Conference Dates: May 15 -19, 2018

Tuesday, May 15
Traces and writing in dance
What do we mean by traces, writing, notations, diagrams and scores? How can we define orality, writing and memory in dance? What are their essence and scope? How can we preserve a work over time?
With Simon Hecquet (France), Armando Menicacci
Facilitator: Anne Bénichou

Wednesday, May 16
Digital technologies: documentation and creation
Can digital technologies help us bring the past to life so we can better understand the present? Do technologies create new forms of symbolization? How do we bring digital realities and dance together? How does the digital landscape challenge our notions of authorship? How can we resist the temptation to accumulate and store massive amounts of data? What can we say about our fascination with technology?
With Armando Menicacci, Alexandre Michaan (France), Denis Poulin, Thecla Schiphorst (Vancouver)
