Dance and research

The discourse on dance as a form of thought is growing steadily and has its own place in research in and about the arts. How do dance and knowledge, body and reflection, movement and discourse relate to each other? Or better yet, how can they mobilise each other? Is a dancing body also a thinking body? Both the growing field of dance science and the rise of artistic research in practice-based dance education have played a vital role in developing the idea that dance also embodies and provokes knowledge. These developments feed the realization that dance not only thinks by doing, but also makes you think.
