São Paulo 2017

CFP: Choreography and Corporeality Working Group, São Paulo, Brazil, 10-14 July 2017.

The Choreography and Corporeality working group will meet this year in São Paulo, Brazil, 10-14 July 2017. We invite interested participants, including postgraduates, to join our group and contribute work for discussion. We would especially like to invite Brazilian dance scholars, and other dance researchers working in the region to join us. The Choreography and Corporeality working group provides a platform for sharing original, cutting-edge research on dance, performance, and the body, in an international context.

Wherever we meet, we try to schedule discussions and performances with choreographers who work and live where the IFTR Conference is held. Given the wide and urgent aspects related to the conference theme of Unstable Geographies, Multiple Theatricalities, we feel that this meeting would be an excellent opportunity to get together, to think, to discuss and to watch theatre, dance and performance, from a different and decentralized perspective, in the largest city of South America.

We ask participants to submit papers on their work in progress. Papers can address the conference theme and/or any aspect of choreography and corporeality. Papers are distributed to the group and are read in advance of conference meetings. They are then grouped for discussion on the basis of synergies between them.


Abstract Submission:

Please submit a 300 word abstract along with a short bio of 50 words (max) to the Cambridge Journals Online website (http://www.cambridge.org/gb/academic/abstract-submission-form-iftr-2017-conference) by 31 January 2017. If you want to join the Choreography and Corporeality Working Group, you need to specify this when you submit your abstract.

In order to submit an abstract, you need to be a member of IFTR. You can become a member or renew your membership on the same website: http://journals.cambridge.org/iftr



Completed papers of (maximum) 3000 words should be submitted to the working group convenors by 15 June 2017 for circulation to the rest of the group to read in advance of our meeting.

Updates and information about our meeting in São Paulo will be emailed to the group. If you are new to the group, please send an email to the São Paulo convenors (contact details below) introducing yourself, and we will add you to our mailing list. We are always delighted to welcome new members and are very much looking forward to meeting old and new friends in São Paulo.
