Reaching the intangible

a MIND THE DANCE lab about documenting artistic practice

In this two day workshop, Ulla Mäkinen (FIN) and Martin Streit (DE) will propose tools and pathways to practice documentation of one’s own artistic practice as dancer and/or dance teacher. We will work with movement as well as documenting it – and reflect around ideas what it means to document contemporary dance for us. Dancing and documenting together might also give us insight on how documenting our practice could be beneficial for ourselves as artists as well as for the whole field of dance.

This workshop is based on MIND THE DANCE, a digital publication of the REFLEX Europe project. The workshop is free of charge for the participants.

REFLEX Europe

Documenting as a tool for reflection in order to improve the teaching and to increase the impact on the learners in contemporary dance.

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 organisations 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 -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 of the Tool & Guide 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) – for publication of the REFLEX Tool & Guide, for networking and feedback.
