DESCRIPTION

The international webinar Producing Memory in Dance: Archiving, Transmitting, Forgetting and the international conference Producing Memory in Dance: Oral History and Mnemotechnics aim to discuss how dance history contributes to the investigation of the past as an ongoing process. Considering movement as a strategy for preserving and transforming meaning and adapting memory as a research tool, a group of scholars and artists explore how dancing bodies remember, archive and transmit experiences, knowledge and culture. The twin-event also questions canonical genealogies of artists, traditions, genres and repertoires by taking into account the role of removal and oblivion in the construction of individual and collective memories. 

During the webinar round table on October 22, the invited artists and scholars will discuss a series of interviews on oral and corporeal memory in dance. These interviews will be available to webinar and conference subscribers from October 18 to October 24. 


The international webinar and conference are organised in the framework of the research project Memory in Motion. Re-membering Dance History (Mnemedance) and they take place in collaboration with Practices of interviewing in dance, a project led by a team of dance scholars at Université Côte d'Azur. They are also supported by the research projects Auto_Bio_Graphy as Performance. A Field of Dance Historiography that is conducted at Universität Bern, and Reenactment as Historiography: A New History of 20th-Century Dance that is based at the University of Cambridge.
