Dance Studies Colloquium: Fairul Zahid, LASALLE College of the Arts, School of Dance and Theatre, Singapore
“Kinesthetic Awareness and Tacit Knowledge in Traditional Contemporary Choreography-Based ‘Tambului’”
Fairul Zahid presents research that critically engages with the self-experience of the choreographer in "Tambului," a traditional contemporary work performed by dance diploma students from LASALLE College of the Arts in Singapore and bachelor’s in dance education students from Indonesia University of Education in Bandung. The "Tambului" works serve as a continuous process of engagement in studio and performance-based practices. This approach allows for an in-depth exploration of the autoethnomethodology used, encompassing contextual research, the theory underlying the work, and elements captured within the choreographic process. This research primarily emphasizes not just the creation of dances but the act of dancing itself, approaching it from the perspective of multiple forms of knowledge–both “knowing what” and “knowing-doing.
This event is open to the public and part of AIR.
