The International Video Dance Festival of Burgundy (France) is pleased to announce that it is now accepting presentation proposals for its first screendance conference to be held on April 5, 2013 at L’ARC National Theatre of Burgundy. The conference will be an international place of meeting where artists, scholars, curators and other professionals interested in the practice of screendance can present their research, as well as network and form working artists/research groups. The conference will occur during the festival’s main week of events.
On Saturday, April 6, attendees will have the option to remain a second day in order to form working/research groups and hold additional informal discussions in the conference space.
The conference theatre and festival events, as well as hotels and restaurants are all located within short walking distance in the city center of Le Creusot, Burgundy. Le Creusot is only one hour’s travel time from Paris via TGV train and 40 minutes from Lyon (also via TGV train).
The festival conference welcomes presentation proposals that address any aspect of screendance research, practice and/or programming. From broad themes to specialized topics, our first conference is an open-themed event to promote the international questions that scholars, artists, and programmers are currently exploring. Presentation will be 20 minutes each. Conference languages are English and French. A bilingual program will be available during the conference.
Presentation proposals: please send a 250-500 word abstract and a brief bio or C.V. no later than February 20, 2013 to firstname.lastname@example.org
