teachback

teachback is a research activity at the interface between dance creation and dance education exploring the similarities between current forms of teaching and producing dance. Its aims is to question methods and to introduce new approaches in dance teaching relevant for the building up of artists whose profile and skills require nowadays diverse and individual knowledge, flexibility and capacity to develop opportunities for further professional and artistic work. The teachback programme consists of modules in which the participants are engaged in a research discovery process based on the sharing of experiences through peer- to-peer discussions. teachback is also an activity enhancing local communities as these modules are realized in cooperation with local artists and institutions (universities, dance academies), with the aim to pave the way for an evolution in art education and art practice in general.
