Digital technologies have brought about major transformations in the dance community. In light of the issues and opportunities identified by the community, this workshop will give us the opportunity to identify courses of action for the years ahead. To help us prepare the workshop, we invite you to complete this short questionnaire.

1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. | Workshop on the Decolonization of the Term “Choreographic Art” *
How should choreographic art be defined in 2019? How can the “Western-centric” vision upon which it is based be broadened in order to bring down the systemic barriers that continue to prevent so many dance professionals from realizing their full potential? The RQD invites you to share your perspectives on these fundamental questions. Presented in the form of a talking circle, the workshop will offer equal sharing of speaking time based on the principle of “embodied talk” developed by researcher Camille Renarhd. It will allow dance professionals to express themselves verbally and to put their thoughts, comments and wishes down on cards that the RQD will collect and review in order to guide future actions in favour of a more inclusive dance community.
Attention: If you have not yet renewed your membership, please do so before you register for the RDV annuel des membres.
