Sensate Technicities: A Conversation Across Dance Cultures and Techniques

University of North Carolina Charlotte

May 3, 2019 – May 5, 2019


Dance connects communities, bringing people together, who move and sweat alongside one other towards a sense of embodied nourishment. This conference hopes to bring multiple communities of practice in conversation with one another. Ranging from South Asian classical form called Odissi to Afro-Brazilian Modern dance technique Silvestre, this symposium opens up the lecture-halls and dance-studios of UNCC campus to the community at large. While scholars in disciplines across dance studies, architecture, digital humanities, computer science, and anthropology will present their work, practitioners will bring their crafts to wider audiences through concert shows, performances, and master-classes.
