Cracow: International conference Re-writing dance modernism”” – call for papers

19 April 2018

The Institute of Music and Dance and the Centre for Comparative Studies of Civilisations at the Jagiellonian University are pleased to announce the international conference “Re-writing dance modernism”, which will be hosted by the Jagiellonian University on 21-22 September 2018. The opening point for this discussion is the First International Competition of Artistic Dance in Warsaw. More than a hundred dancers convened in 1933 for a dance festival and competition: roughly half came from Poland, while the remainder came from across Europe and as far afield as Egypt, India, and Indonesia. Taking Warsaw 1933 as a starting point, this conference looks at the range of dance practices in interwar Europe, with an accent on the countries that have until now been underrepresented  in general dance history. The conference is planned as a platform of exchange between scholars from as diverse backgrounds as possible, both those with significant experience  and those at the beginning of their academic careers. Therefore each of the two days will bring presentations by invited key note speakers and selected applicants. We welcome proposals for conference papers of 40 minutes.

They come together for this rare two-day festival of Central European contemporary dance. The festival offers a satisfying and intimate sampling of the fantastical and the hypnotic, the tongue-in-cheek and the playful humdrum of everyday. The first edition of the festival will take its place on April 19 – 20 2018 in New York and April 25 – 26 2018 in New Orleans, US.  V4 DANCE Festival 2018 will introduce the work of choreographers Věra Ondrašíková (Czech Republic), László Fülöp (Hungary), Pawel Sakowicz (Poland) and Stanislava Vlčeková and Jozef Vlk (Slovakia).
