What the Body Remembers. Dance Heritage Today “Intercultural” Archives: The Dance Archive Box Project

Lecture and Discussion

Over the past 20 years the theatre director, researcher and festival director Ong Keng Sen from Singapore has systematically dealt with questions about tradition, performative communication, archives and bodies in Asian dance and other forms of theatre. His central theme is the relationship between individual subjects and tradition. As an example he introduces the project on dance archive boxes, which have been compiled by contemporary dancers so that they might be passed on to other performers and artists.
