The fourth international Light Moves Festival of Screendance symposium announces its open call for papers and presentations entitled 'Screen Dance Through the Senses'. The symposium sits within the festival and encourages artistic and scholarly exchange, debate and discussion in screendance and related disciplines including performances, dance, film, visual arts, sound and text.
The 2017 symposium invites screendance makers, spectators, advocates, and academics to examine the forms and approaches that enable this field's diversity and vibrancy. We particularly welcome presentations that are discursive and interactive including workshop type formats, group/panel discussions, demonstrations events, as well as paper presentation formats.
This year, Light Moves is pleased to announce that its Call for Papers and Presentations may benefit from the opportunity of publication in collaboration with the International Journal of Screendance. To that end, particularly strong responses to the call will be offered the opportunity to further develop their work for potential publication in a special volume (or section of volume) of the IJSD in April/May 2019.
Closing date for submissions *Extended*: Monday 10 July.
