How to »invent« tools to communicate? How to »educate« not to be educative? How to »grip« the idea of the author? How to »articulate« material in order to open-up the space? How to »catch« the inner flow of the performance? How to »read« thinking through moving?

From DRAMAturgy to ARTiculation;

 Whatever has to be articulated.

My main research intersest is to define what is the lack of co-working profiles in the field of dance education, which is connected to the process of creation and the question of mentorship. In that context I have started with the personal experinece of dance teachers (as authors) in the first step, what I will connect with the profile of dance  scholars (second step).

 From Ljubljana workshop I have prepared the list of answers and I am kindly inviting you to continue it with  your own personal experience!
