REFLEX Europe

REFLEX Europe researches and uses documenting as a tool for reflection in order to improve the teaching and to increase the impact on the learners in contemporary dance. It is a partnership of 8 European organisation working in the field of contemporary dance and its education.

At the core of REFLEX Europe is the Research Group consisting of 11 dance teachers and experts in dance video and dance writing. Over the course of three years (September 2015 until August 2018) the Research Group will develop the REFLEX Tool & Guide in a series of Research Modules.

The summerly IDOCDE symposium which is held each year at ImPulsTanz Vienna International Dance Festival complements the research of REFLEX Europe. Next to its function as peer to peer platform for exchange among dance artists and teachers the symposium relates the project progress to the interested audience and with its help and feedback will further develop the REFLEX Tool & Guide.

In the last project year, outreach workshops and a final master class will disseminate project results.

Teachers who are interested in working in detail with the REFLEX Tool & Guide after attending a workshop in their country are invited to a master class at the Symposium. They will receive a certification which qualifies them to teach the REFLEX Tool & Guide workshop themselves and beyond project duration.

REFLEX Europe is funded by the European Union and collaborates closely with the online network for contemporary dance and teaching, IDOCDE (international documentation of contemporary dance education, www.idocde.net) for publication of the REFLEX Tool & Guide, for networking and feedback.

Post-Graduate Programme Performing Citizenship

New forms of citizenship are developing in the cities of the 21st century: self-organized and independent from the state and often creatively they do not only negotiate but also practically shape the way of how we live together. Performing Citizenship explores the articulations of this new urban citizenship, which puts into practice its desire and right for participation with performative means. Is it possible to think a “performative democracy” beyond our system of representative democracy? What comes into focus is a gap between traditional institutions such as political parties, public authorities or unions and a self confident and self-organized (nonviolent) new citizenry, which increasingly contributes to resolving urban crisis situations with artistic means.

The Graduate School aims to analyze this performative turn under the term “performing citizenship”. Since artistic practices play an important role in this context, the postgraduate programme is conceived methodologically as an artistic academic cooperation. The three-year programme qualifies doctoral candidates both artistically and academically, and can thus contribute to ground and advance Hamburg’s pioneering role in the development (and sophistication) of artistic research. The Graduate School includes a colloquium, workshops, public events, practical experiments and interventions in public space to investigate Performing Citizenship from a multi- and transdisciplinary perspective blending urban studies, cultural education, choreography, philosophy, urban design and cultural studies.

The graduate school “Performing Citizenship: New articulations of urban citizenry in 21st century metropolis” started on January 1st, 2015. It is supported by a cooperation of the HafenCity Universität (HCU)/department Metropolitan Culture, the Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaft (HAW)/department Design and two research-led non-academic cultural institutions, the FUNDUS THEATER and K3 – Centre for Choreography | Tanzplan Hamburg).

360° - Building Strategies for Communication in Contemporary Dance

360° - Building Strategies for Communication in Contemporary Dance (BSCD), aims to bridge a gap identified transnationally in the ability of dance artists and makers at all stages of their careers to communicate their work effectively beyond the medium of movement to a wide range of stakeholders. In order to address this, the partner organisations will share best practices on the topic of communication with international experts through a series of transnational meetings. The knowledge generated will be captured and shared through an online publication which will be available for free to all.
This project involves six partners from across Europe: Centro per la Scena Contemporanea, Bassano Del Grappa;  Dance Ireland, Dublin; Dansateliers, Rotterdam; Hrvatski institut za pokret i ples, Zagreb; K3 – Zentrum für Choreographie, Tanzplan Hamburg; La Briqueterie - CDC du Val-de-Marne, Vitry-sur-Seine.
The project will run from 01 September 2016 – 31 December 2017.
