Laboratory of Dance / Dance as a Vantage Point


Interdisciplinary Symposium, July 1-3, 2020, Łódź, Poland

Lab of Dance aims to build an exchange platform covering contemporary research strategies in dance studies, including, among others, emergent artistic research practices, as well as tool-disciplined cognitive science methodologies, both vividly drawing on a variety of theoretical and philosophical contexts. On such ground, together with the invited keynote speakers and participants of the symposium, we plan to discuss the methodological difficulties and challenges of interdisciplinary dance research and the benefits that can be derived from overcoming them. At the same time, we recognize the expansion of dance and related terms to other branches of knowledge, where it appears as the preferred research material, but also a source of functional concepts and metaphors. Thus, we invite researchers, philosophers and practitioners to jointly study the expanding space of the dance laboratory.
