25th Annual Oxford Dance Symposium
The 25th Annual Oxford Dance Symposium will take place in New College on 18th & 19th April 2023.
Organised by Michael Burden and Jennifer Thorp.
Dance, Costume and Scenography
Keynote Speaker: Jane Pritchard (Victoria & Albert Museum)
'Dancing at the V&A'
The Oxford Dance Symposia focus on the technique, practice and philosophy of dance during the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, and we always welcome papers on any aspect of dance during this period. Each year, however, we have a light touch theme to which participants are invited to respond if they wish. The theme for 2023 will be ‘Dance, Costume and Scenography’ a theme to be interpreted as broadly as possible, but within the date range of the symposium. Topics might include costumes for theatrical performances, dressing for communal dancing, the physiology of dance and costume and clothes for ball room dancing.
The Call for Papers has now closed.
