The Dance Scholarship Oxford (DANSOX) programme are hosting an event on 'What is Dance without an Audience?'.
When non-dancers dance: considerations of audience and performer in contemporary British community-dance events.
Social dance blurs the distinction between audience and performer. Nowhere is this more true than in community barn dances, usually held by non-performance based organisations across England. This evening will feature a brief talk about the concept of performer within this context, drawing upon PhD research of such dances in Buckinghamshire. This will be followed by a fun, practical workshop where the concepts of audience and performer are engaged with.
