Lecture “Writing with Bodies & The Alienation of the Dance” on Wednesday, 5th of June
In the lecture “Writing with Bodies & The Alienation of the Dance”, Laura Aris will focus on the specific values in the art of dance and its teaching. The three main themes of this lecture will be:
- The art of teaching
- The development of an artist
- The courage to create
Laura Aris will talk about the sensitive balance between the physical, mental and emotional development and well-being of vocational students as well as professional dancers. “I will be bouncing between these three interconnected and inseparable matters; exposing some ideas, recurring issues, and wonders that I have faced during my professional career, whilst combining my creative works and the pedagogical encounters,” says Laura Aris about the lecture “Writing with Bodies & The Alienation of the Dance”.
