teach me (not)!   01 - 03 August 2014

IDOCDE (International Documentation of Contemporary Dance Education) organizes the 2nd IDOCDE SYMPOSIUM on contemporary dance and its teaching methods at the ImPulsTanz – Vienna International Dance Festival 2014.

teach me (not)!
There are many ways information is being relayed in contemporary dance education settings. Questions around the roles of the dance teacher, the learner and the material arise once opening the thoughts towards this process. 

Themed „teach me (not)!“, the 2nd IDOCDE Symposium thus aims to investigate horizontal - or non-hierarchical - learning, use of language and current practices in contemporary dance education and related fields and to look further into the question: How do we teach?

The symposium welcomes everyone interested in contemporary dance and related fields and invites to share teaching practices, questions & ideas around the current teaching of the art form.
