    The workshop aims to examine the musicality of the body and, vice versa, the corporeality of music from a choreographic perspective. This approach corresponds with the extension of the concept of music, as well as the questioning of performance traditions in the context of New Music, which also puts a stronger emphasis on the body.
    The relatively young democracy of Poland, whose political climate has intensified considerably since the last elections, is also moving increasingly to the fore. Politically critical leaders of representative cultural organisations have been, and continue to be, replaced by the new administration, while independent creative artists appear to be able to find niches that so far or already live outside the country.
    The conference will take place from 29 November – 1 December, 2018, at the Unipark Nonntal.
