Choreography and Corporeality

Choreography and Corporeality

The Choreography and Corporeality working group provides a platform for sharing original, cutting-edge research on dance, performance, and the body, in an international context. Our next meeting: IFTR Belgrade, 9-13 July, 2018

Choreography, dance and body-centered performance practices provide a vital site for exploring the convergence of thought and action. Our members approach this intersection from a variety of interweaving perspectives that include socio-political, cultural, philosophical and historical considerations.

Wherever we meet, we try to schedule discussions and performances with choreographers who work and live where the IFTR Conference is held.

We ask participants to submit papers on their work in progress. Papers can address the conference theme, and/or address any aspect of choreography and corporeality. Papers are distributed to the group and are read in advance of conference meetings. They are then grouped for discussion on the basis of synergies between them.


The group's most recent publication is an essay collection edited by Dr Philipa Rothfield and Professor Thomas F. DeFrantz: Choreography and Corporeality: Relay in Motion (Houndmills: Palgrave, 2016): http://www.palgrave.com/br/book/9781137546524
