Dance Dialogue

Because only thinking is not enough

Dance Dialogue makes complex organisational and societal questions tangible and visible by using movement.

What is a Dance Dialogue?

A Dance Dialogue is a research method and intervention in which complex issues and questions are explored by movement in the actual location where the question occurs in real life. Dancers are asked to represent a role in the issue and are guided in an improvised dance. Subsequently they are interviewed about their interactions, feelings, thoughts and experiences in the dance.

What we offer

Dance Dialogue film

If you want your own complex topic or question visualised into a short film we offer a full production of a Dance Dialogue film.

 

Dialogue workshops

We offer workshops with your own Dance Dialogue film or with a previous Dance Dialogue film. In these workshops we work together on creating new perspectives and actions for change.

 

Dance Dialogue live intervention

Do you want to experience the impact of translating your question or topic in a dance by dancers in your presence? During a live intervention dancers are guided by a Dance Dialogue facilitator with the participants present in the space.  

 

Let's Collaborate

We start to talk to experts in the workfield to understand the scope, context and complexity of the question. The question can be on a team, organisational or societal level. We do fieldwork, observations of the physical context and interviews. From this we decide how a Dance Dialogue can contribute to your ambition by defining who the stakeholders are and what impact you want to achieve.
