Re:generations 4 - Diasporic Dance: Legacies of Imagination will be the fourth academic and artistic international conference stimulated by conversations from the past three biennial conferences.  In efforts to raise Britain’s profile within the global practice of DAD, over the years Re:generations has demonstrated the UK’s impact on the sector, its role in creating a footprint in the dance forms and training, and the evolving international partnerships. Our 2016 partners on the planning committee include IRIE! dance theatre, independent consultants Judith Palmer and Christy Adair, ACE Dance and Music, De Montfort University, and for the first time an international partner, dance Immersion (Toronto, Canada). 

With the aim to both celebrate the achievements of elders and foster the talent of a new generation of dance practitioners and dance scholars, this year’s conference will focus on heritage, legacies, histories, geographies, places and spaces of dance of the African Diaspora.  The keynote speakers Hilary Carty (UK), Peter Badejo OBE (Nigeria-UK) and Dr Anita Gonzalez (USA) will give presentations alongside masterclasses, workshops, daytime and evening performances, debates, panel and round table discussions, academic paper presentations and digital presentations by artists and practitioners from the UK, Canada, USA, Europe, the Caribbean and Africa. Through these presentations and dialogues Re:generations 4 will explore the following sub themes:

  •        Youth dance work (training and intergenerational dialogues)
  •         Heritage and Digital Arts
  •         Women and the dance profession
  •         Health & wellbeing
  •         New approaches to creating histories for the development of DAD
  •         International dialogues

 

We are pleased to continue building relations with The Government of Quebec and The Canadian High Commission in the United Kingdom who will support the conference partners to host 22 Canadian delegates.  Featured artists from Montreal and Toronto include John Alleyne, Ghislaine Dote, Roger Sinha, Jasmyn Fyffe, Esie Mensah, Kevin Ormsby and Vivine Scarlett, who will present choreography, lead masterclasses and lecture demonstrations, and serve as panelists. 

Re:generations 2016 is supported by Re:generations Partners 2016
