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. 

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.

‘Forms of Self’

A movement work in response to ‘Forms of Self’ (1956) Barbara Hepworth.- (Bronze sculpture)- on permanent loan to Norwich Castle Museum.

In March 2021 Myself,Dance artist tomwithington and photographer andisapey collaborated to produce a series of photographs for norwich_castle_art norwichcastle. Our response represents the organic qualities presented within Hepworth’s work accentuating the expressivity of the dancer and more specifically how there is not a fixed idea on the permanence of the underlying self. Presenting an understanding and viewing the self as tangible to experience.

SILENT is an audio performance for a group of audience members in public space that consists of movement/workout instructions for body and thought. It responds to the Covid-19 pandemic, its impact on the public space, on closed borders and the inability to travel, on exposed vulnerabilities of our bodies.

Work in progress presentations took place at the garden and in the building of Troja Castle in Prague.

The premiere will take a place on 19.9. at 16:00 and 17:30 at the Vaclav Havel Square (Piazzeta of ND). THIS PERFORMANCE WILL BE IN ENGLISH ONLY.

The performance follows up on other activities of the international research project DANCING MUSEUMS, of which SILENT is a part. The organizer is Tanec Praha in cooperation with the Prague City Gallery and the National Theatre.

This weekend we performed A CLOSER LOOK choreographed by ingridbergermyhre together with Ingrid, asheyho hannekjensen anchetas georgia_boddez

In this performative guided tour, visitors were accompanied on an alternative path through the museum building of Bundeskunsthalle in Bonn. As each trajectory unfolded, much like a dot-to-dot game, careful coincidences gently invited the visitor to discover new ways of seeing.

Excited to share: the movie premiere of Liquid Landscape (with sound)! Enjoy our new modern fairytale premiering today at Arte Sella, Italy.

By walking onto the 50m2 artwork, the surface begins to move, and gentle ripples occur in the grass. A carefully designed collage of local soil and water is buried in the Italian ground, and covered with a custom flexible container of nutrients and grass.

Against the background of the solid Alpine mountain surrounded by nature with its seasons, the artwork symbolizes the change in our climate. We think our world is static, but it is not; it is continuously changing. As a call to action, Liquid Landscape playfully inspires visitors to re-appreciate their relationship with nature and the impact on Earth.

Movie directed by Daan Roosegaarde, with special thanks to dancers Ilaria Marcolin and Giacomo Citton.
