The Democracy of Beings is the second of two programmes, following an initial research phase (DM1) that ran from June 2015 to March 2017. You can find details of DM1 here.

In this period of accelerated change, there is an urgent need for professionalism, shared vocabulary and a coherent conceptual framework that makes sense of the many different approaches to audience engagement.

In Dancing Museums – The Democracy of Beings, individuals and arts organisations share, improve, develop and transfer skills and knowledge needed to broaden and deepen connections and relationships with audiences. 

The practice-led research group, composed of artists, dance organisations, museums and universities from seven countries, looks at how the presence of dance can offer new ways of experiencing art and heritage and help audiences and visitors engage both intellectually and viscerally with artworks. The knowledge and experience generated throughout the project will empower the organisations and artists involved with the skills needed to implement meaningful audience development projects beyond the duration of the project. 

These practices will be shared and documented in each location to build evidence and ensure consistency of data and anecdotal information. 

Final Conference The Museum as a Space of Experience: A Choreographic Conference. October 7, 2021. 14:00 – 18:00 CET.

Coronavirus update:

The period of constant change we have recently been living through, where we are unable to meet in person, has made it necessary to explore new ways of working together, new ways to continue our collective research and new ways to make certain events public. We have decided to use this time as a phase of experimentation. Everyone involved in Dancing Museums is focusing on what and how we can build differently. It is a challenging and exciting task, an experiment that brings many opportunities to try new ideas that would never emerge in a normal situation.

Přijďte ještě na jeden zážitek do divadla. Zcela bezpečný zážitek, ve kterém hrajete hlavní roli vy a vaše tělo.
Bez vás to nevznikne…
🔴 2/12 | 20:00 | Silent (indoor!)

Nechceme to zbytečně dramatizovat, ale tohle je skutečně poslední příležitost – naše sezóna končí – vzhledem k novým opatřením doporučujeme naposledy se společně s námi setkat a pořídit jeden dáreček ještě před Vánoci.

🔴 Příští čtvrtek dočasně obsadíme prostor divadla PONEC, na jeden jediný den – a pak jej opustíme- bez zanechání jakékoli stopy! Snad jen té, která se otiskne do vašeho zážitku.

Come to the theatre for one more experience.
For a safe experience in which you and your body are in the main role.
It won't happen without you!
🔴 2/12 | 20:00 | Silent (indoor!) | PONEC

No pressure, but this is really the last opportunity – our theatre season is ending – due to the new measures, we propose to meet with us for the last time and get one present before Christmas.

🔴 Next Thursday we will temporarily occupy the PONEC – dance venue for one single day – and then we will go away- without leaving any trace! Perhaps only the one that imprints on our experience.

An incredible experience last tonight dancing under Gaia st.petermancroft -Dance artists jadeealexsandra_ and tomwithington responded live to the #earthartwork piece by artist lukejerramartist and to the SoundScape by #DanJones

Gaia is a touring artwork by U.K. artist Luke Jerram. Measuring seven metres in diameter and created from 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the Earth’s surface* the artwork provides the opportunity to see our planet, floating in three dimensions. 

The artwork is 1.8 million times smaller than the real Earth with each centimetre of the internally lit sculpture describing 18km of the Earth’s surface.

The slowly turning sculpture is presented with a specially made surround sound composition by BAFTA award winning Composer Dan Jones.

DANCING MUSEUMS ONLINE | In the pictures some of the artists involved in the triennal european project Dancing Museums – The Democracy of Beings (2018-2021) while speaking at the online final international conference "The Museum as Space of Experience: a Choreographic Conference" organized by Ca' Foscari University. From left to right: Teresa Ondrova, Masako Matsushita, Ingvild Isaksen, Ingrid Berger Myhre, Quim Bigas and Eleanor Sikorski.
The artists shared memories of personal moments and anecdotes about pregnant encounters and experiences they lived in the museums all over Europe.
"A Little invisibile dance with two visitors in Miró while watching a painting. We were moving together as we were staring into the painting . We did not speak and I am uncertain in they gave seen the dance I think we have had"- Quim Bigas said remembering his time in Barcelona.
They also shared some physical exercises and activities.
"How many of something it takes to reach the other object in the opposite cardinal point?" Masako Matsushita and Ingvild Isaksen asked through their computer screen by concluding their flash virtual dance class.
"3,5 arms; 10 feet; 2 fingers, 5 steps; 2 outstretched arms; 9 times my laptop mouse; 4 books and 1 leg; 4 jumps; one glance; a slow reverse Blink navigated by breath …" participants typed on their keyboards. During the conference, the editor in chief of "Repères, cahier de danse" Marisa Hayes announced the publication of the issue "Danse et/au musée. Entretiens" (2017) by La Briqueterie Éditeur.
Susanne Franco, professor at the Ca'Foscari University and Gabriella Giannacchi, professor at the University of Exeter launched the book they edited: "Moving spaces. Enacting Dance, Performance and the Digital in the Museum". The project was cofounded by the EU Creative Europe Programme in partnership with Comune di Bassano
