Ruth Cathlow’s definition of the artist role in her book Artists Re:thinking the Blockchain:
“Artists are good in mediating abstractions for our perceptions through play, open exploration and supposition. They can tolerate, even relish, extended encounters with difference, contradiction, muddle and slippage between symbolic and material possibilities without rushing to usefulness or simplicity. They have a kitbag of methods and processes for revealing the practical affordances and animal spirit of a subject, medium or technology. They know that a way to get to know something that does’n yet exist is to collaborate with its possibilities and to do something/anything with it or about it. And by doing so, they materialize and shape what it will be, allowing many other people to access, approach and reach out to it with different parts of themselves:”

Call For Proposals

5th IDOCDE Symposium on Contemporary Dance Education

July 28 - 30, 2017 at ImPulsTanz Vienna International Dance Festival


why compromise. mind the dance.

promoting actions and creative visions in a precarious world


Informed by the developments in the world of socio-politics – and the cultural attention that goes along with it – we at the IDOCDE headquarters decided it was time to frame our annual Call for Proposals as a Call for Action. This decision is to address the theme of the 5th IDOCDE Symposium.

The theme of the 5th IDOCDE Symposium – why compromise. mind the dance – is different from the previous themes in that it does not only ask you – the dance educator, artist, student, cultural worker, and the participant in the making of The World – to look inwards and reflect on your developing practice, share your reflections and by doing so enrich the experience of others. The aim of this year’s Symposium is also to ask you to add an outward-looking reflection whilst asking the question: what is my practice actually doing to the world – given my experience of managing personal pedagogic and artistic practices? How are my pedagogic and artistic decisions shaping the world of others – my students? My peers? And what, in particular, is the effect of the decisions I am not making?

(The time for mulling around is up.) 

Assuming that compromise is somewhat a part of everyone's daily life, we ask: What do you actually do when you compromise? What are the reasons for which you compromise? And how long do you think it will be possible for you to continue that practice?

We are not interested in asking you to imagine a world without compromise. This is not a utopian exercise. What we are inviting you to is, thinking thoroughly about compromise. And consider what kind of world your practice is creating. What kind of institutions, what kind of organisations, what kind of ecosystems, what kind of politics, what kind of families. 

Instead of stepping into the trap of ‘judge-mentality’, we would like to ask you to join us, think together with us; to pose sincere, straightforward, and challenging questions. In short, we would like to ask you to approach this Symposium with the clarity of body-mind you may have never dared to engage with before in a public space, and by doing things you may have never dared to do before in a public space. In other words, we would like to ask you to approach this challenge – ‘as a human being’, an experienced participant in an alliance of individuals, artists and educators. 

We hope this call is inspiring and exciting; resonating with your priorities, with your practices, with your interests, and with your passions for dancing – if so send your proposal today! And help us bring about a Symposium that will not only enrich, but that will also move – move participants to action. Help inspire, inform, and support our community by exposing your experiences: Your physical practices, your pedagogic practices, your theoretical practices, your artistic practices. Your public thoughts, your intimate thoughts, your affirmative thoughts, your challenging and critical thoughts.

Help encourage the community by joining this alliance. Participate at the 5th IDOCDE Symposium on contemporary dance education and so – help make a difference!

Proposal for “why compromise. mind the dance.” and their formats* may include the following, but are not limited to these:

Emerging practices in the oscillation between art-making and education

Examples you find within you or around you, or in other landscapes beyond dance as a response-ability to the world around you


Philosophy in and of dance

Political actions

Historical context(s)

Proposals that address the how we are being with each other right now right here






Performative actions

Hang outs


Mediated spaces (virtually and non-virtually)

*We invite you to challenge (or not) the ‘usual’, the ‘conventional’, the ‘traditional’ formats of public presentations and sharings, teachings by staging your sessions in a way that aligns the staging to your thinking and ‘the doing of your thinking’. In other words, we invite you to think ‘outside the box’. This might be the opportunity for some to question or problematize the assumed role language has in enabling communication. What of your thinking would best be communicated in words, and what of your thinking would best be communicated in experience, performance, movement, action, etc?


IDOCDE invites contemporary dance practitioners, dance and movement educators, researchers, theoreticians and other practitioners contributing to this field

to submit proposals for the 5th IDOCDE Symposium!

All practical or theoretical proposals centered on aspects of teaching, researching or practicing dance, in relation to the proposed theme, are being considered.

Formats might range from teaching a class and sharing reflections, hosting a lecture demonstration, talk or discussion, to more uncommon or experimental formats, or anything in between.

Propositions of a length up to 2 hours (ideally 90 minutes, longer or durational propositions will be considered whenever possible), individual and team proposals from teachers all over the world and the IDOCDE community are warmly welcome. 


Please fill in the PROPOSAL FORM by creating a new idoc under your profile and add it into the Symposium Folder before February 15th, 2017.

  • If you feel inspired but you’re unsure of how to frame your thoughts within the parameters given by this form – please contact
  • Complete the proposal form on and send a copy to
  • For technical issues/ idocde website, please contact
  • Deadline for proposals: February 15th, 2017


Your Symposium and REFLEX project team:

Defne Erdur, Eszter Gál, Pavle Heidler, Kerstin Kussmaul, Lieve de Pourcq, Martin Streit 



The IDOCDE symposium is part of the EU program REFLEX EUROPE.

REFLEX researches and uses documentation as a tool for reflection in order to improve the teaching and to increase the impact on the learners in contemporary dance.

No tener miedo a probar, a usar esos otros cuerpos porque sabemos que van a estar ahí bailando, comunicándose, hablando el mismo lenguaje, encontrando patrones que reconocemos y que los podemos usar...

We would like to thank students from around the globe for their submissions and congratulate the selected filmmakers. This is the first year a Jury's Choice Cash Award has been offered.

The $200 award goes to the Workshop "Cámaras danzantes (Dancing Cameras)" taught by Silvina Szperling at Escuela Internacional Cine y TV in Cuba, in collaboration with Festival DVDanza Habana, directed by Roxana de los Ríos, during March-April 2011. With over 80 submissions from around the world the collection of student dance films made during a workshop in Havana, Cuba with Silvina Szperling from Argentina, are particularly compelling. It is to the sponsors of this workshop that we award our cash prize, as a way of supporting their efforts. By the simplest of means, these student filmmakers immediately transport us to their worlds, and a great spirit of humanity is evident in every film.

Lectures, consulting and labs

on-line producer/curator/researcher/workshop leader

dance and new media/networked media production/collaborative technologies



I offer consulting, lectures and facilitation of workshop as participatory platforms for knowledge sharing and change with an embodied improvisational approach.

I like to share my experience on:

  • On-online/off-line collaborative technologies/methods
  • Social media and hyper-media for artists and cultural managers
  • Movement arts and new media (dance and technology).
  • Networked/collaborative creativity and interactive tools for knowledge production, generation  and distribution
  • Open Space technologies and interactive learning for collaboration and innovation
  • Performance, communication and sustainability
  • Post-pc technologies for collaboration and creation
  • Collaborative spaces and networks for/in the performing arts

I facilitate the materialization of social dynamics that augment dialogue and increase the possibilities of  collaboration for social innovation.




Labs and workshops*:

With a hybrid background on dance, cognitive science, new media and organizational development, I combine improvisational arts, collaborative methodologies, on-line  collaborative technologies, eco-systemic approaches and mindfulness training to facilitate the necessary environment and collaborative architectures to augment participation, engagement and innovation.

I focus on embodiment, collaborative creativity and the potential of the new internet for the development of alternative and self-organizing  strategies for knowledge production  and learning.

I use interactive learning strategies, games and open space technologies as relational interventions questioning traditional approach for knowledge sharing between bodies, countries, disciplines and organizations.

I have lectured and facilitated workshops in more than 20 countries within professional events (conferences, symposiums, festivals) and educational institutions.

* All workshops are adaptable in their formats and may be modified based on needs and local conditions. 

Open Space Technology is the main format  for all workshops.

Mobile lab equipment is provided.


meta_creation lab

Inter-actors, attractors and the aesthetics of complexity

An embodied collaborative workshop interfacing movement art practices, digital arts, computational networks and social systems oriented to movement and interdisciplinary artists (music, new media, theater, etc)


This workshop is a collaborative lab to creatively explore the contemporary performing approaches of real-time composition considering them practices of an aesthetics of self organization and of complex systems.

An embodied/distributed cognition approach is used to generate physical activities and games (scores), guided discussions/conversations about relevant artists works and concepts exploring the aesthetic of embodied complex systems  their emergent properties for spaces activated by human and computational actions.

meta-creation are  real-time composition games/scores, that explore the dynamic couplings of mind, body and information/data flows as a hybrid meta-design that allows for emergent and self-organized "dramaturgies"  and/or performance experience.

This workshop is an open space for experimentation and inquiry about  bottom-up architectures as compositional prototyping strategies and processes.

The participants explore interactivity plus generativity:  use of rule systems, computational and hybrid (human/machine) algorithms as "scores" conceiving the performance space as a cognitive system.

Lectures, workshops and consulting
Vlogger/social media specialist/on-line producer
dance and new media/networked media production/collaborative technologies

Marlon Barrios Solano is the creator and producer of, dance-techTV, DANCE TECH@, a series of online interviews and several projects of participatory journalism in the arts. He shares his experience with these platforms and sustainable models of production,
exchange and distribution of knowledge within communities of artists of movement, digital media and organizations. His interventions are always bodily grounded and systemically approached based on his hybrid background of dance, new media/real-time technologies and cognitive science.

He researches the many changes and necessary strategies implied by the new horizontal Internet architectures that facilitate participation, collaboration and its potential for the development of audiences and collaborative creativity.

April 2: Where We Are Now: Locating Art and Politics in New York City

Where We Are Now: Locating Art and Politics in New York City | Network-Wide Meeting
Date: April 2, 6:30 – 8:30PM
Location: Judson Church, 239 Thompson St., at W. 3rd St., NYC, in the assembly hall basement

In October 2007 a call was circulated for a meeting of art, academic and activist institutions and individuals to discuss the merits of a coordinated strategy to raise awareness of the many art and politics discussions and projects in the city, while making an impact on the politics of NYC and beyond.

One month later, more than 60 representatives from a range of institutions convened, and the Where We Are Now network was born. Our goal is to demonstrate that powerful critical voices still exist, in pursuit of global justice, agency and participation. Using the pivotal moment of the 2008 presidential election, we share a sense that the times have changed and are ours to claim. Through activities as diverse as art exhibitions, days of decentralized action, street performances and pedagogical conferences, we seek to gauge the status of the political in contemporary art, and consider how we may act as resources for one another and for communities within and beyond New York City.

Network-wide meetings will be held on the first Wednesday of every month at the same location and time.
