The 22nd World Congress on Dance Research

Published 31.03.08

2-6 July 2008, Athens, Greece. Application deadline: 30 May 2008

This is the largest gathering of dance specialists world-wide showcasing their works to a wide audience of practitioners, dance teachers, choreographers, researchers, journalists and organizers.

While intended primarily for professionals, it is at the same time a trade fair and a participatory event, facilitating contacts with colleagues, informal discussions and individual initiative. All forms of dance are represented. This strictly non-profit event is not to be confused with festivals, workshops, competitions, forums or open conferences.

Submitting a presentation (research report, lecture-demonstration, class, performance, exhibition, projection) is optional. For each presentation a text must be sent before 30 May 2008. Absentee delegates can also register; their presentations will appear in the program and will be included in the proceedings.

The congress, taking place from July 2 to 6, is organized by the Dora Stratou Dance Theatre and the Greek Section IOFA, in collaboration with the International Dance Council CID, under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture, the Ministry of Education, the Municipality of Athens and the National UNESCO Commission.

The programme includes:

Presentation and discussion of original research reports

Classes, lecture-demonstrations, video projections

Performances by dance companies, duos or solos

Exhibitions and sale of books, records, pictures, costumes, accessories etc.

Visits to places of special interest, such as dance schools, museums, sites etc.

Evenings where members can discuss in a relaxed setting.
