Though, it is important to keep in mind that this expression is used in a popular way to gather many different really really different choreographic practices, which can be sometimes contradictory in their aesthetical proposals. So, the expression 'contemporary dance history' will serve here mainly as a chronological reference. A discussion about contemporary dance features of the following figures or pieces might come in other pages.

Where do we come from? What do we have to say? How do we want to express it? Nevertheless, the audience has to be involved, as there is no performative art without an audience, without the public. This is why an interactive website was initiated, www.
In autumn and winter, the artists travelled to different regions, hosted by local partners, giving workshops and performance lectures or participating in festivals, thus reaching out with their experience to diverse local audiences. The grand finale took place in Prague, a city situated in the very heart of Europe. Here, once again, all the artists met, working together on presenting the fruits of this research process, at last made tangible.
This was an adventurous enterprise, a risky challenge for each of them -and, at the same time, a unique opportunity and gift for an audience willing to follow an international group of young artists along their creative path. It was called BAZAAR, a market place for colorful ideas and dynamic exchange, a week of workshops, lectures, discussions and performances, gathered together at a regional transdisciplinary festival.
It was always intended to be an e-book: immaterial and not for sale; an interjection more than a statement, thus mirroring the idea of the project.
The question of whether identity can be 'identified' remains open -as it should, if we want to move on. Paradoxically, even if their attitude towards the system is critical, they do perfectly meet, willingly or not, the standards of the neoliberal, 'westernised' countries.
The goal was to give artists time and space to do their own research: let them think, work, try out different directions and let them focus only on the process itself, to use the time as they want. This book draws the landscape we have all passed through over the last two years.
The path of questioning different concepts, testifying about new conditions, challenging the usual ways of working, struggling with both stress and slackness, refusing the necessity to always be productive, creative, attractive. It consists of material we were working on at different phases of the project, as well as contextual materials concerning the crucial points of our common research: Identity, 'Easterness', Politics of Dance, Time and Process.
I don't think so -it does not seem to be graspable. But maybe we could still inspire a reader to pursue her own research. Since she has realized various workshops in Sofia, as well as one in Amsterdam and one in Berlin.
They included workshops on "programming reactive live visuals", multichannel audio installations, "rediscovering sound and instrument building" and an animation workshop. Since she made different exhibitions in Bulgaria but also abroad -in Italy and Finland. Baeva works in the fields of interactive design, experimental video, sound art and performance art. She uses open source software and DIY practices for building new musical instruments and interactive installations for urban spaces and galleries.
In Albena Baeva founded the Runabout project, which was a platform for communication and interaction between artists and musicians. Her work includes interactive videos and sound performances developed mostly as part of the Runabout project. In the performance was nominated for the Ikar Award in Bulgaria. In Baeva created an interactive video for the theatrical performance "Eyes of The Others" directed by Mariy Rosen and written by the young Bulgarian playwright Ivan Dimitrov.
The performance was nominated for the Bulgarian theatrical Asker awards in Currently, she is working on Azamen, a large-scale project made within the framework of the Runabout project. It is an interactive dance performance that began in The two dancers in Azamen are equipped with a pair of wireless sensor costumes that connect their movements to a computer.
Their bodies are thus turned into musical instruments that are capable of capturing sounds and words, playing them over and over again, modulating and transforming them until they create the perfect audio environment for their dance. For Baeva, contemporary art is by definition interactive. She uses play-like elements to involve audiences in her works.
In these works, communication between the audience and the work of art, between performers, the music and visuals is central. Baeva participates actively in every stage of the creation of her works. Drawing, programming, soldering to the physical work of building different constructions and objects inspire her to find new and unconventional combinations of materials, media and functions. Through this process she creates multiple layers of meaning. Later she was also a dance teacher, a participant in dance workshops, once more a contemporary dance teacher, for non-professionals, a performer and an assistant choreographer collaborating with various artists.
In she was one of the initiators of the educational programme in dance In2grad based on practical and theoretical ateliers and a co-initiator of a programme on art in education. She was an invited artist at the Arizona State University. In she initiated, together with Mihaela Dancs, Azuga Summer School, an annual arts education program for children.
At least this what she feels from the Romanian perspective. The piece's title means being split between personalities. In Dedublarea she was playing with this identity crisis that nowadays she find herself in once again but in different circumstances. Avoiding, dissimulating and hiding the true identity was her way of questioning dance taught in an unhealthy educational environment. Questions she also had when she was literally carrying a huge question mark on an intervention on the streets of Bucharest and placing the object on crucial historical spots where the revolution of took place.
By walking with it around the city on a caravan she was trying to question the urban space, how the history is being erased and replaced by expensive and monstrous monuments and an aggressive consumerist propaganda. She is a performer, dancer and a choreographer. She is an active member Station Service for contemporary dance in Belgrade. Her educational and artistic development in contemporary dance and choreography was realised through different sorts of non-institutional platforms such as Fostering Creativity and As a performer Ana was working with choreographers and theater directors including Dalija Acin, Isidora Stanisic, Aleksandar Popovski and Andjelka Nikolic, and was part of different awarded performances.
Some of her choreographic performances are It, Let's start from the beginning, Performance that is not called pussies in dicks, Tell them about the dream and Temporaries.
She is focused on collaborations and interested in exploring various ways of creating within non-hierarchical structures. Her artistic interest dwells around "dancing" concepts, questions, relations, languages and bodies. The focus of her work is on the one hand on the "politicality" of art and art work, and on the other -the "politicality" of our everyday individual and collective lives, today.
Looking from this perspective, questions about identity appear often. Specifically, Ana is interested in the issue of the self-construction of identity in relation with the society.
Asked about identity, Ana replies that she would like it to be a research on love and other politics. A research on the anarchoqueer theory and practice as a form of resistance, something like: How do we relate to people emotionally and sexually?
How have these types of relationships largely been determined by oppressive systems such as patriarchy, heteronormativity, capitalism, families, culture, and the state -systems that we do not believe in, and which we are constantly rethinking and struggling to dismantle?
After working as a psychologist, he focused on artistic projects realised in Romania and abroad. In his work he often switches the contexts in which he activates -visual arts, contemporary dance, activism, theory. Some of his projects were realised together with Alina Popa. His past projects are, among others, Dead Thinking and Second Body as well as He explores and problematises the political component of art and the aesthetic component of politics -mainly through practices and ideas around the concept of Postspectacle.
Through concepts and practices like Second Body, Dead Thinking, Eternal Feeding Technique, he is currently developing performances and theory in the frame of Unsorcery. In one of his current projects, Dead Thinking, he is trying to construct a certain identity through developing a thinking less from this world and more oriented towards darkness and the unknown. Florin also reflects upon the body: "[Since the 's it has been] clear that it is not enough to try to oppose the economic and political order, that the problem is not just about how to bring more bodies to the streets to fight the power of the authorities and the obvious problems, but also about what kind of life powers those bodies.
The bodies of the protesters and that of the rulers are not that different -in spite of the racial, sexual and class differences, at certain levels we share a degree of rigidity and limitations in our bodies, life capacities and potentiality. Intuitively, a lot of what happened at the end of the 60's was very much about addressing this situation, and about a liberation of the body from all sorts of disciplinary constraints. Since then there was a lot of talk about capitalism that constructs our minds and bodies, about an imperative to follow our desires and to bring freedom to the body.
And some experimentation with common living, sexuality, psychotropic substances and everything that can be done to bring freedom of the mind and body. A good example for this attitude was the passing from a disciplinary regime to a sort of expressive regime of the body in the dance of that period. Improvisation was the keyword and everything seemed to be possible, the body freed from the classical and modern dance discipline could finally express itself.
The enthusiasm and the joy of the freedom lasted for a while but, after years and years of self-expression, a depressive moment arrived when the realization that there is no 'itself' to express couldn't be postponed. He was born in in Budapest as child of musician parents so he's got a strong musical background and education in his childhood. Later his interest started to turn more and more towards dance and theater. He went to Budapest Contemporary Dance Academy and finished his studies in Since then as a freelancer he has cooperated with many different artists and dance companies and as an independent choreographer he has developed his own choreographic works as well.
His main topic of research is the human being in its own completeness, without ideologies or prejudices: in a simple, pure and personal way.
He focuses on the performers' personalities and tries to avoid any generalizations, spectacular elements, classical aesthetics of dance, which diverts attention from the performers and simplifies the analyzed phenomena.
He always centered his previous works on specific psychological topics: In his piece whatsupwithyou?! In what does 'iloveyou' means? Her academic experience includes giving seminars on dance analysis at the Academy and also at the Lithuanian University of Educational Sciences.
She is publishing reviews in German and Lithuanian for dance magazines and online dance journals. Since she initiated a project called "Dance through wordnot [new]criticism" with the aim to strengthen the dance criticism in Lithuania and to develop an innovative form of a dance review. Her other projects include "Critics vs. Choreographers", aiming to support artistic collaboration between young dance critics and young choreographers where the critic takes a role of a dramaturge; and the Berlin Festival "Litauen tanzt contemporary", aiming to present Lithuanian contemporary dance for German audience.
Modern Dance History, Movements, Styles, Dancers & Competitions
Modern dance has many flavors. There are stark differences in the choreography of Ruth St. Denis and Ted Shawn, who formed "Denishawn", in dances like "Americaine" or "Radha" and today's Pilobilus, "Symbiosis," or the Swiss dance group, Mummenschanz, whose ultra-dramatic choreography is set to modern dance movements. Compare this to the style of modern dance in the film "Holiday Inn. The movements in "Choreography" are deliberately exaggerated to show the purpose of modern dance steps and movements.
Contemporary dance  is a genre of dance performance that developed during the mid-twentieth century and has since grown to become one of the dominant genres for formally trained dancers throughout the world, with particularly strong popularity in the U. Although originally informed by and borrowing from classical , modern , and jazz styles, it has come to incorporate elements from many styles of dance. In terms of the focus of its technique, contemporary dance tends to combine the strong but controlled legwork of ballet with modern that stresses on torso. It also employs contract-release, floor work , fall and recovery, and improvisation characteristics of modern dance. Additionally, contemporary dance sometimes incorporates elements of non-western dance cultures, such as elements from African dance including bent knees, or movements from the Japanese contemporary dance, Butoh. Contemporary dance draws on both classical ballet and modern dance, whereas postmodern dance was a direct and opposite response to modern dance. Merce Cunningham is considered to be the first choreographer to "develop an independent attitude towards modern dance" and defy the ideas that were established by it.
I owe my deepest gratitude to Sally Varrall for her continued support, guidance and encouragement throughout. I would also like to make special reference to my parents as without them the completion of this thesis would not have been possible. This study investigates, through a detailed movement analysis of several choreographic works, whether Hofesh Shechter has created a new technique within contemporary dance today. The central subject matter of all art is emotional value not fact. The art which expresses emotional values in movement is dance.

Around s, the world "contemporary dance" referred to the movement of new dancers who did not want to follow strict classical ballet and lyrical dance forms, but instead wanted to explore the area of revolutionary unconventional movements that were gathered from all dance styles of the world. Contemporary dances therefore do not use fixed moves and instead try to develop totally new forms and dynamics, such as quick oppositional moves, shifting alignments, expressions of raw emotions, systematic breathing, dancing moves preformed in non-standing positions for example lying on the floor , and in general trying to find the absolute limits of our human form and physique. The origins of this popular dance movement can be traced to several influential dance masters such as Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham and Merce Cunningham. They all wanted to show to the world that contemporary dancers should embrace freedom, ignore old dance conventions and explore the limits of the human body and visual expression of feelings. Also, one of the precursors to the contemporary dance can be found in the millennia's old techniques of Zen Buddhism and Indian Health Yoga, which incorporates various dancing philosophies that closely follow the principles of contemporary dance.
