Performance project by Nicole Wendel, Jan Burkhardt and students of HMfT

Spaces shape our bodies and bodies shape space. In the performance developed for three different exhibitions with ten dancers of the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln, the individual scale will become visible in the context of physical, psychological and architectural space through different materials. Movements as drawing, sound as resonance of the bodies in the space and abrasion as a lasting trace of the otherwise ephemeral happening, become into a landscape of forms and possibilities.

New research project in the field of dance studies

We are happy to announce that our new research project, starting in winter 2022, will be funded by the DFG!

Under the direction of Prof. Dr. Yvonne Hardt, the project "Modes and Episteme of Collectively Produced Dance Knowledge: Empirical-Qualitative and Knowledge-Theoretical Investigations of Analog and Digital Teaching and Learning Practices in Contemporary Dance" aims to develop a differentiated understanding of embodied modes of knowledge through a comparative field study of analog and virtual teaching and learning practices in contemporary dance. During the corona pandemic online teaching formats in dance practice proliferated. A comparative study of presence-based teaching and online formats provides an excellent opportunity to investigate processes of emergence, modes, repertoires and hierarchies of knowledge. Nevertheless, there has been hardly any research pursued on the relation between dance teaching practices and forms of dance knowledge. Furthermore, the project analyzes modes and epistemes of teaching and appropriation processes in relation to their social practices of inclusions and exclusions to discuss relationships of power and empowerment.

In the course of this project, two additional research assistants will be working at the CCD.

More information will follow soon.
