Publication: “Dance & visual impairment"

Dance & visual impairment  – For an accessibility of choreographic practices, produced by Centre national de la danse and Cemaforre-European Centre for Cultural Accessibility in the frame of the THE HUMANE BODY EU project, raises questions of how our senses are used in dance teaching practice. In considering how we might develop a more inclusive teaching methodology for blind and partially sighted learners it also exposes other questions: how might traditional ocular-centric teaching models be denying the potential for everyone of a more multi-sensory approach to learning dance? What possibilities might there be for a pedagogy that embraces touch and hearing as equals with vision?

Regarding the situation concerning the danceWEB scholarship recipient Mohamed Yousry Fathy Saleh:

Following a police incident that occurred on the basis of alleged disregard of a red street light on July 22nd, 2017, the person concerned, Mohamed Yousry Fathy Saleh, has raised the question whether this was a case of “racial profiling” and racial assault. Ever since this incident ImPulsTanz and danceWEB team as well as the festival director Karl Regensburger are supporting Mohamed Yousry Fathy Saleh and are in active pursuit of this matter along with the help of ZARA – Verein Zivilcourage und Anti-Rassimus-Arbeit. According to police procedures a guidline complaint was filed with the aim for a mediation session in order to eludicate the facts. Now that the police have provided an extensive fact pattern, a mediation session was not offered after all. In addition, according to the assessment of ZARA, the statements set out in this issue on the part of the police lack any basis for a judicial follow-up of this incident. ImPulsTanz regrets that no further dialogue was achieved and would like to express its appreciation to all parties involved for their attempt for a respectful coexistence.

LASS SPRINGEN! (let it flow)

Dance workshops for socially disadvantaged children and teenagers.
Dancing not only raises spirits and is great fun, it also makes you braver, smarter and stronger. Just one reason why we are happy and glad to be offering a versatile program for our youngest dancers - and we do not wish to exclude anyone from it. Already in the spring, we started a donation campaign and asked for help to enable economically disadvantaged kids and teenagers to partake in our workshops as well. And the project is still ongoing!
