Dance Congress 2016 will take place from 16 – 19 June 2016 in Hanover, Germany. In its meanwhile fourth edition, it established itself as an international forum for the discussion and presentation of dance, choreography and movement in theory and practice.
How to welcome other practices, influences, ideas and cultures in our contemporaneity? Where are the boundaries and thresholds of our artistic, discursive and institutional hospitality? How do we work? How do we relate to our time? How can we say ‘we’?
The Call for Proposals invites artists, theorists, students and all working in dance to take up a position on the concept of contemporaneity and apply with questions and issues, work projects and case studies from their respective practices. We explicitly welcome proposals from other artistic and theoretical disciplines.
In terms of a critical dialogue and focussing on the process of knowledge production with and through dance, choreography and movement, the Call for Proposals addresses groups (2 and more persons). Individual submissions will not be considered. We explicitly invite contributions that critically reflect upon and/or in someway work to modify familiar conventions and formats.
A selection of the submitted proposals shall be realized during Dance Congress 2016 (16 – 19 June 2016) in Hanover.
The deadline is Tuesday, 26th May 2015
Feedback will be provided until end of June 2015.
