LABO Inclusive Dance Platform (LIDP) is a research project for inclusive dance practice (2015 – 2017) at the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp. The Platform organizes weekly classes on wednesday, dance workshops and activities for anyone who loves to dance, with and without (physical) disabilities.
The LABO classes have touched upon many themes and research questions. Focus for this year was mainly questioning and exploring/experiencing. On top of that, it was important to bring the dance students of the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp in contact with Integrated Dance.
When looking at the content of the first couple of LABO classes, the focus was mainly on the acquaintance with each other’s bodies. Explore basic elements as space, give and receive impulses, use stops in the movements, and make translations of movements to your own body.
This publication will show an insight of the first five classes: Movement research in class (2016)
The publication was made in collaboration with Wietse Vendrig (dancer).
