Dance Dialogues: conversations across cultures, artforms and practices

Jointly published by the Australian Dance Council ­ Ausdance Inc and  Queensland University of Technology, these Refereed Proceedings include  53 papers from 14 countries in the Americas, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, reflecting both the spirit and diversity of the Global Summit.

From seasoned scholars to emerging artists publishing for the first time, these authors span the perspectives of academics, educators, performance and community artists, health professionals and cognitive scientists; predominantly from dance but also from film, visual arts, science, performance and philosophy.

The papers cover the five broad Summit themes:

  • Re-thinking the way we make Dance;
  • Re-thinking the way we teach Dance;
  • Mind/body connections;
  • Transcultural conversations and
  • Sustainability.

Dance Dialogues: conversations across cultures, artforms and practices is freely accessible with downloadable PDFs of all papers.  The publication can also be catalogued for library and databases by public and private institutions.
