Dance Symposium
University of Wolverhampton: Research in Dance

Date : samedi 11 mai, 11h-15h b
Lieu : The Performance Hub, Walsall Campus, WS1 3BD

Professor Matt Wyon
Beneath the dance is a body
Until recently dancers often had a passive attitude towards physical fitness, believing that class and rehearsal will adequately prepare their bodies for performance. This talk will examine recent research that challenges this belief and put forward the argument that dancers are truly artist athletes and their training should mirror this reality.

Frances Clarke MSc
The development of dynamic balance tests for an undergraduate dance population using time to stabilisation protocols
Aiming to develop dance-specific balance tests for dancers, this research study suggests future implications for balance testing and training, and will include a discussion on selecting appropriate terminology relating to current practice in dance science.

Danielle Aways, MSc
Rotate those Rotators: How to use rotational disks
for turnout awareness and conditioning
Through a description of a movement session on leg rotators, Danielle Aways will discuss how she brings dance science into her teaching practice to coach and improve dancer’s technique and artistry.

Dr Victoria Thoms
Queer Mourning—Queer History: Richard Move and the Ghost of Martha Graham
Derived from a chapter in her forthcoming monograph on Martha Graham, this paper explores Bardo, created by Richard Move in 2007 for the Graham Company, and argues that the piece elicits what Thoms has called an instance of queer mourning. Move’s communion with Graham instantiates both a corporeal and psychical ‘bringing to life’ that presents a potent example for revisioning, belonging and kinship.

Dr Clare Lidbury
Jooss, Leeder and Opera
This paper examines the contribution of the German dance practitioners Kurt Jooss and Sigurd Leeder (key figures in the 1930s and ‘40s for their work as
dancers, choreographers and teachers) to opera.
