CORD/SDHS 2015 Proceedings Published


CORD/SDHS Athens Proceedings 2015 are now published! Check out my paper with Thecla Schiphorst, “Transmitting and Distributing Bodily Knowledge in the Digital Age”…

Abstract: We explore embodiment in the digital age—a time where dance is now often passed down from body—to computer—to body. While some believe digitally mediated transmission of bodily knowledge to be “disembodied,” we propose that digital technology can extend our conceptions of embodiment by creating more space for knowledge and growth within the field of dance. We seek to understand the expanding notion of embodiment through a case study that examines the transmission of bodily knowledge in the performance Longing and Forgetting. We compare differences in transmitting bodily knowledge through multiple modes: phenomenological accounts, text, and video.
