Motivating Factors:

  • Question: The main question asked within the research is “Why dance matters?”. The themes of our discussion focus groups will help us interrogate this.
  • Aims: The main aim of our work is to enable our dancers to find a way to own his or her movement, and from this ownership being able to initiate, repeat and develop it.
  • Process: We continuously invite new artists to lead co-creative processes with our dancers. With our dancers at the source of the inspiration, this research is a continuation of that process.
  • Translation: Besides the understanding of the process we want to inspire. The inspiration from new choreographers stimulates our dancers to move.
