Re:generations – dance and the digital space

Thu, 7th-9th Nov 2019

An international forum exploring how technology drives innovation in African influenced dance.

We are excited to announce the International One Dance UK Conference 2019, Re:generations – dance and the digital space.
With a focus on dance of the African Diaspora (DAD), this event aims to bring the dance community together to stimulate critical debate, share current practice, research and innovation and encourage new perspectives for the future.

Hosted in partnership by One Dance UK, IRIE! dance theatre, Middlesex University, dance Immersion and The Lowry, the theme for Re:generations 2019 is ‘dance and the digital space’. We will explore the ways digital technologies can be used for artistic innovation and creative practise, unite global communities through online platforms whilst increasing the visibility of diverse work to mainstream audiences.

The conference provides an international platform connecting UK artists, practitioners and scholars with global leaders from Africa, Canada, the Caribbean, Europe, USA and beyond.

Across the 3 days there will be panel discussions, lecture demonstrations, masterclasses, workshops, academic paper presentations, performances, networking events and more!

The conference will provide bespoke programming for producers, new media practitioners and executive artistic leaders. A key event will be the launch of the report for One Dance UK’s ‘Dance of the African Diaspora Mapping Research’; presenting the current state and needs of the DAD workforce with a scope for future growth and development.
