2014 World Dance Alliance Global Summit

Contemporising the past: Envisaging the future

An international program of conference presentations, performances, masterclasses and choreolab, which explored the many ways in which dance engages us in a world of digital transformations, interdisciplinary and transcultural practices and pedagogies, and evolving cultural and social identities. It foregrounded how knowledge of the past enriches and informs both present and future in this complex and rapidly changing dance environment. The WDA Global Summit therefore interrogated the lineage of influences; current trends and practices, locally and internationally; and perspectives on a future dance ecology that can be sustainable and inter-connected.  See also: http://ausdance.org.au/publications/details/contemporising-the-past-envisaging-the-future
