On dance ecology

 

‘dance ecology’ describes a creative contemporary approach to identifying the processes, systems, maps and poetry of the embodied mind, where the body is constantly, simultaneously engaged with one’s self and one’s immediate surrounding environments, experienced as embedded within the world’s ecological matrix.

‘Dance ecology’ combines the illuminations (as offered here on the website) as principles of practice: the dancing body; adaptation; place mapping; and transfer of properties. The principles exist within a greater framework of consistent macro-micro perspective shifting, in order to deeply engage with the world, operating through agency. The broad term is designed to reference any contemporary site based study that engages the self within physical inquiry for the purpose of self-study and environmental causes while addressing issues of ecological balance.
