Atelier Muse hosted a seminar about dance writing in METU Contemporary Dance Days on 4th May, 2019 in Ankara, Turkey.
Müge Olacak led the presentation “Dance Writing As A Learning Practice” with the content of introduction of dance writing, examples from Turkey and around the world. The presentation ended with a discussion about what to do to continue writing about dance (preparations for the ‘dancelog’ project by Atelier Muse) for our own critical thinking development both as artists, arts professionals in the field and audience.
The presentation also kicked off thinking about the audience experience during the festival. Festival participants shared their ideas and questions after each showing with Müge Olacak and among each other. After the program, Sinefin Gış shared her writings, inspired from the presentation, during the festival on her personal blog.
