Mobility in Dance: Enough or Further?



 For many years practice of mobility in the sphere of contemporary dance has been developping considerably.  Unlike is often the case in Theatre, this artistic discipline is largely unharmed by translation, and dance professionals have successfully integrated the international dimension of exchange through their work in production and on tour.  It seems impossible for many of them to deny themselves of this international opportunity.  In addition, they are fully aware of the intricacies and pitfalls of this type of collaboration. 

Hence must they content themselves with what they have achieved and with well-trodden paths, or are there still unknown landscapes to explore?  How can we develop mobility whilst fulfilling artistic demands and opposing uniformity?  (Cultural diversity is obliged to be protected from commercial standardisation). 

How can we develop international exchange without becoming simply a product for exportation?  This Meeting Group will endeavour to propose possible solutions, arising from innovative examples.

Many Thanks to Ruth Collier, Bruno Heyndrickx and Ludovica Ricardi.
