IDOCDE (2018) - ImPulsTanz Vienna 

Getting prepared for the 6th IDOCDE Symposium 

I will be participating at the ImPulsTanz festival in Vienna as a co-speaker during the 6th IDOCDE Symposium of Contemporary Dance Education in Vienna 27th-29th of July 2018. ImPulsTanz provides each year, next to the practical exchange and development programmes, also the possibility for theoretical exchange in diverse symposia.



10 days of hard work and beautiful people in Vienna! The IDOCDE residency has come to it's end so it's time to get cracking with some new blog posts. First one is about the MDT Lab that I attended during the first weekend. In this two-day research laboratory we were presented with the digital publication 




Johanna Henritius

I'am a Finnish dancer - researcher and PhD candidate at University Côte d'Azur. I graduated as Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts from the University of Nice Sophia-Antipolis. Before this, I studied at the Ballet School of the Finnish National Opera, the Royal Swedish Ballet School and in Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (SEAD). 

As an artist, I have danced in Finland, Sweden, Austria and Germany and France. I'm currently working with Celaine Company and my latest work experience includes contemporary dance pieces Astray (2018), Inline Analysis (2017), Ein Tag Zu Zweit (2017) and the dance film AM (2018). 

A central theme of my doctoral research is to tackle the conceptual and methodological problems concerning the meeting point of dance and spirituality. As a member of the research laboratory CTEL, I pursue my doctorate under the direction of Marina Nordera and Federica Fratagnoli. In my research blog, I share projects, seminars, articles and thoughts related to my field of study : practice based research, choreographic processes, somatic education, documentation, energy healing techniques, spirituality.
