Methods of Dance symposium

"METHODS OF DANCE is not only a song by the group Japan from the 80s, it invites you to think about possible links between method and art, too. What is a method in artistic research? How does it work? What is the difference between searching and researching, method and doing?

On METHODS OF DANCE we will discuss this subject.

Keynote speaker is Alain Franco. As classic piano player he collaborates with Anne Theresa De Keersmaeker on dance performances, in the complex field of combining choreography, music and stage performance. Structure is needed to make this happen, methods, too. What can we learn from this experience in the fine arts, in design? What kind of methods do we use? How do we make methods transparent for others?

The symposium takes place on Friday 12 October 2018 at

LUCA School of Arts, Campus Sint-Lucas, Alexianenplein 1, 9000 Ghent, Belgium.

If you like to present your example of methods in artistic research, please send us your proposal and portfolio via mail.
