The 14 – 16 December 2012 there will be an international interdisciplinary symposium on choreography, violence and human rights at Dansens Hus, Stockholm, that will also constitute a workshop (1 hp) in Konstnärliga forskarskolan (Download course curriculum here.)
WEAVING POLITICS addresses choreography as a weaving labor of politics. And by a cobweb of specific languages and disenchanted knowledge engages in a scrutiny of the notions and practices of human rights, and violence. The symposium invites choreography, philosophy, sociology, cultural studies, law, political science and the general public to a three-days storm of lectures, discussions, and choreographic events in critical interaction.Special guests are, amongst others, Julia Kristeva, Peggy Phelan and William Forsythe.
WEAVING POLITICS takes place at Dansens Hus, Stockholms largest venue for contemporary dance and City Conference Centre, located in the same building, Folkets Hus.
