Abstract

This presentation explores practice led research through the experiences of choreographers and dancers in Loyola's 2020 Mainstage Dance Performance. Dancers were involved in the creation of two dance films: Mic Check 1.2. and Family Tree. As opposed to quantitative and qualitative research forms, in dance-based practice led research, knowledge is generated through the processes of exploring embodied identity, developing movement, and expanding creative methods. We aimed to answer the question - What new understandings about culture, consciousness, memory, and storytelling does work in the dance studio or theatre generate that cannot be revealed through other kinds of research? And how has this changed since the switch to virtual performance?

Practice Led Research Through the Lens of Dance Film
