My current research is grounded in exploring applications of educational research to dance. It is a multiple perspective phenomenographic study into the diverse experiences of transformative learning through individuals’ involvement in intervention projects in dance and disabilities. The intervention I will be focusing my interviews and analysis on is ‘11 Million Reasons to Dance’ by the organisation People Dancing: Foundation for the Community (PD). Transformative learning provides both a theoretical anchor for the phenomenographic methodology I will be using and an approach for analysis of the interview transcripts.
Vip has focused on audience studies and the impact of participatory experiences since her MA in Anthropology of Media at the School of Oriental and African Studies. Since then she has been exploring alternative learning pedagogies and educational research in her teaching and research career, the majority of which she spent in Singapore and Thailand, alongside which she learned Spanish dance. More recently, she has been researching how phenomenological research methods can be used to document the lived experiences of performer and audience members in the performing arts, particularly transformative learning experiences.
