Case studie: “Dancing Museums: Exploring new ways of engaging the public though physical experience”

By Elisabetta Bisaro, speaker; and Patrizia Braga, moderator.

Art is often seen as a collection of isolated appearances rather than an open language for relationships. This has led to a growing disengagement and sterility in the public, which is concerning. Rather than imposing the artist’s single-framed view on the world, the participants of the EU-funded project Dancing Museums have decided to embrace an open process where there is space for learning and blurring or shifting roles between artist, institution and audience.

I will share the experiences and outcomes of Dancing Museums and its impact on the organisation I work in. Blurring boundaries between spectator and creator, the project aims to draw the public’s attention to contemporary dance as an inclusive and social form of art. I will discuss the ways in which choreography and dance enrich the experience of looking and being in a visual art environment. Critical to this is the concept of cultural change within the organisation – choreography in museums and galleries is more than just ‘putting on a show’.
