Dance and Disability: An Insider view

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

As part of this presentation, Kate will present an ‘insider’ perspective relating to the film produced within the project Resilience and Inclusion: Dance Artists as Agents of Change. The creation of this film enabled her to adopt an artist-researcher position during filming. This unique role meant that she could ask questions and attempt to explore them through practice with her peers. She will present her experience as both a disabled dancer and choreographer and researcher on a project which at its core seeks to uncover the ‘realities’ of dance practice for disabled artist. In addition, she will offer a reflection on the benefits of intensive practical research in gaining a valuable insight into the ‘real’ experience of disabled artists in practice.
