A keen view about Contemporary Dance and Education between Italy and Croatia
Our view about Contemporary Dance and Education is about finding a new and creative way to face up to the challenges which are put if front of a human race by the contemporary way of living. It helps to bring the change to the society thanks to its merging of principles like justice, inclusion, tolerance and non-violence. It lights up the questions like poverty, human rights, pollution and conflicts, trying to find a creative and active approach for solving of these challenges. It also helps to motivate people to become more responsible and to have an active role in creating a better and more equal society.
We manage to create the bond between Croatia and Italy which opened the space for the exchange of artistic ideas as we created the possibility to have a direct dialogue without the interference of any kind. As our idea grows, more and more artists will be involved and will have a possibility to share and learn. By creating and applying our new method of Free Body Education which is a result of merging Pedagogy of Expression on one side and Theatre Dance, Butoh and Sufi Dance and philosophy on the other side, we will help to create the new generation of artists which will be able to communicate their ideas in completely new and different way.
Our initiative is an experimental research about trying to find the way to transform the teaching of contemporary dance through the Pedagogy of Expression and to make it more suitable to respond to existing and emerging issues of the contemporary living, such as globalization, migration, human rights, education for peace, dialogue and tollerance.Tags: Contemporary Dance, Free Body Education Method, Teaching, Teaching Dance
