How do we educate within dance?
-Discussion and reflection with the day's programme as a starting point. Under leadership of DOCH an interactive talk is held where dance practice, education, time and equality is touched upon.
In the autumn of 2016 the course ”Variations of Functions and Choreography” was conducted at DOCH for the first time. The course was directed at dance artists with or without disabilities. Claire Cunningham, one of the United Kingdom’s most acclaimed and internationally renowned self identified disabled artists, was one of the tutors on the course, along with Anna Grip, senior lecturer in dance, and Linda Adami, lecturer in improvisation and interpretation. The course gave the participants possibility to expand and develop their choreographic work with the body as a starting point. Problematising and reflecting around the functional body in dance and choreography was also part of the syllabus.
