C-DaRE Call for proposals – Digital Echoes 2018


Call for Proposals: Digital Echoes Symposium 2018 / Reflections off the Future

Date: 23 April 2018

As an acoustic phenomenon, an echo is a reflection of sound off a surface. The time it takes to reach this surface and return is proportional to the distance between the sound source and the surface.  For Digital Echoes 2018, we invite contributions that reflect off the surfaces of the future. As the question “Where are we now?” was the starting point for the Dance Fields symposium at Roehampton in April 2017, we propose for Digital Echoes 2018 to ask, “Where are we going?” Therefore, for Digital Echoes 2018 we ask you to let your imaginations run free, to dream up how this future echo might appear. It is up to you how far in the future you wish to travel, but just in case you get the impression this call is open for ‘anything’, we provide the following list of keywords: collective choreography, other bodies, touch and stillness, new materialism, immersive experience, what remains, inclusivity, forgetting, dance in museums, annotation practice, dance valuation, rethinking archives, trauma and the somatic, screen bodies, collecting societies, ownership and intangible heritage.
