Moving Reflecting Documenting

The art of documenting dance teaching and artistic practice



In this two-day lab Eszter Gál (HU) and Martin Streit (D) will introduce the digital publication of the REFLEX Europe project – MIND THE DANCE*: A Guide/ A Movement to Documenting Contemporary Dance/ Movement Teaching (mindthedance.com) and the IDOCDE** website.

To get to know each other we would like to offer practical work and giving space for sharing the areas of teaching and artistic practices and interests in documenting. We will also facilitate discussions on the burning issues participants have. Martin can also introduce his approach to documentation and share the manual for video documentation that is in the MTD publication. We can also suggest various ways to approach the content of MTD. This may prepare you for your own journey in reflecting upon, sharing, documenting and developing your individual practice. Moving, thinking and documenting together might also give us insight on how reflective documentation could be beneficial for ourselves as pedagogues, artists, practitioners as well as for the whole field of education. Bring your questions and share your knowledge while using the structure of MIND THE DANCE. We are going to create this Lab together!

The MIND THE DANCE lab is free of charge and will be in English, but if needed there will be Hungarian translation. The Lab is open to anyone inspired by movement and reflection through documentation, it is designed to support the creativity, self-reflexivity and the practical works of teachers, facilitators from different physical studies and performance practices, visual arts and other branches of art and science.
