This project examines an innovative way of empowering persons with conflict-related disabilities in Sri Lanka through a combination of dance and law that was pioneered and piloted by VisAbility, a German association, in mid-2015.
The proposed project brings together scholars from Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience (CAWR) at Coventry University (CU) and Department of Animal Sciences (DoAS) at Stellenbosch University (SU) as part of a knowledge exchange around action based research approaches that can be applied in exploring local institutions and livelihoods of communal livestock farmers in South Africa.
Applicants are invited to consider the nature of the moving body and the implications of technology for dance transmission. The potential synergies of somatics and technology provide an opportunity for innovative proposals that span approaches to dance, movement, choreography and performance practice that have these key foci: virtual and augmented reality; motion capture, digital visualisation, realtime visualisation and immersive experience.
Somatic practices applied in health, education and creative fields (and overlaps between these) have become established areas of practice and research, across Europe, North and South America, as well as parts of Asia. This call invites PhD proposals at the cutting edge of research on somatic practices, which reflect on the status quo of current methods and topics, critiquing the field and pushing boundaries of the potential of somatics to engage with global issues.
Research in new materialism as well as post-human studies have recently taken the negotiation of human life under scrutiny, deconstructing a subject-centred perspective by regarding the interrelatedness of human and non-humans like animals, objects, and things. In the wake of this, issues such as gender, identity, biopolitics, and ethics are highlighted by promoting alternative life-concepts that queer traditional understandings of a human-centred world.
