Dance conference in Stockholm. The theme of the conference will be POSTDANCE – beyond the kinesthetic experience and back.
Together Gabriel Smeets (artistic director of Cullberg Ballet in Stockholm), Andre Lepecki (professor at New York University and guest professor at DOCH) and Danjel Andersson (artistic director of MDT) joined forces to organize this 3 days conference on the theme postedance.
The conference wants to be an opportunity to really find time and space to reflect on the developments and forces that have shaped choreographic imagination from the 1960s up to today. The conference is envisioned as oscillating between moments where guest speakers would make more focused interventions and then longer sessions throughout the day of more informal debates and roundtables.
The conference wants to bring together theorists, artists, students, teachers, curators for these 3 days to discuss dance from the sixties till now.
So far, confirmed speakers are: Adrian Heathfield, Mette Ingvartsen, Mårten Spångberg, Bojana Kunst, André Lepecki, Samlingen (collective of choreographers: Amanda Apetrea, Nadja Hjorton, Stina Nyberg, Halla Ólafsdóttir and Zoë Poluch), Jefta van Dinther, Florentina Holzinger, Jens Östberg, Ivana Müller, Mette Edvardsen, Francois Chaignaud, Manuel Pelmus, Cecilia Bengolea, Andros Zins-Browne, Jonathan Burrows, Hooman Sharifi, Poste Restante, Charlotte Vandevyver, Ofelia Jarl Ortega, Siegmar Zacharias, Benjamin Vandewalle, Antonia Baehr, Martina Rushsam, Myriam van Imschoot and Erna Òmarsdóttir.
