Here is an overview of C-DaRE projects completed before 2014:
Moving Matters is a resource pack for anyone who is involved in teaching and supporting the teaching of dance students in higher education. The pack also provides useful information for individuals, agencies and organisations that are supporting disabled dance practitioners prior to entering higher education or after graduation.

Funded through the AHRC Beyond Text programme and led by James Leach, University of Aberdeen, the project brought together research teams working in collaboration with the choreographers William Forsythe, Siobhan Davies, Wayne McGregor and Emio Greco PC. The teams worked to bring choreographic ideas and processes into newly productive exchanges with both general audiences and other specialist knowledge areas via interactive scores and installations, choreographic software agents and digital dance archives.
Led by Claudia Kappenberg (University of Brighton) this international AHRC-funded network was founded in 2009 in order to advance an interdisciplinary theoretical and practice-based discourse on the artform. The Network brought together UK and US based researchers, scholars and practitioners and has since established the International Journal of Screendance, published by Parallel Press/University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA.
Funded by JISC, the D-TRACES Project (Dance teaching resource and collaborative engagement spaces) developed a model for embedding Siobhan Davies RePlay within the Personal Development Planning (PDP) element of the undergraduate dance curriculum at Coventry University, thereby generating learning objects for much wider distribution. The aim was to enhance the students’ experience of working with online resources for application and transfer to other learning situations whilst providing a model for application in the wider HE sector and in disciplines other than dance. The methods developed are now embedded within the dance curriculum and continue to encourage students to develop effective ways to self-archive, build more digital resources and support the health of dance as an academic discipline.
Enhancing Choreographic Objects (EChO) received AHRC follow-on funding, extending the work of the AHRC Beyond Text Choreographic Objects project. The project was undertaking knowledge exchange from social science during the development of a specific choreographic object, the prototype Choreographic Language Agent (CLA) created by scientists and designers in conjunction with leading UK choreographer, Wayne McGregor. Having successfully developed the CLA as a creative tool for use in the studio, the project aimed to further develop the CLA in the form of a public installation that embodied aspects of McGregor’s choreographic process, and communicated them to new audiences.

The 'Reality Remix' project brings together an interdisciplinary team of experts - a fashion designer, artists, researchers, an interactive designer, a software engineer, computer scientist, and a choreographer to address challenges and opportunities that emergent technologies bring to content creation and interaction methods in Mixed, Augmented and Virtual Reality.
Social Choreography network
What does social choreography mean today, and to what extent can this field provide new frameworks to help address the issue of cultural stereotyping of refugees?Violent military conflict, environmental crises, breakdown of social, racial or ethnic integration, are some of the many reasons why millions of peoples are being displaced across the world. Immigration is regarded today as arguably one of the most pressing political issues by voters and the wider public, and not only in a post-Brexit UK. Whilst the problem of forced migration is typically addressed from within the social sciences (e.g. migration and diaspora studies, sociology, political science, or development studies), little is known about the way in which the movement arts and bodily perspectives are responding to such crises. The gap in knowledge that the network is aiming to address concerns a lack of understanding of embodied socio-choreographic practice at a regional and cross-national level.
Somatic practice, chronic pain and self-care technology
This network brings together experts from dance and somatic practices, health and digital design to explore the living, sensate and subjectively experienced body in context as a means of understanding chronic pain and self-care strategies.
Fifties in Europe – Kaleidoscope
The project aims at leveraging photographic content in Europeana depicting the 1950s in Europe, connecting today’s citizens with the post-war generation whose dreams of a better life led to the establishment of the European Union. Kaleidoscope wants to increase engagement with Europeana content, by heightening user interaction through crowdsourcing and co-curation.
CultureMoves is a user-oriented project that aims to develop a series of digital tools and services that will enable new forms of touristic engagement and educational resources by leveraging the re-use of Europeana content. The project stands on 3 pillars: technology for content re-use adaptation and sharing, real-life use cases for tourism and education, intangible cultural heritage and more specifically dance.
