This symposium brings together researchers and practitioners pursing dance-science enquiries. We are welcoming submissions in the format of presentations, interactions, demonstration, or performances (including films). We encourage contributions from previous successful interdisciplinary initiatives between dance, science, humanities and cognition studies, in particular but not limited to:

Embodied, embedded, extended, and enactive cognition in movement practices;

Social and cultural studies on dance practice;

Interaction, intersubjectivity and shared cognition in dance and performance arts;

Neural correlates of dance;

Embodied creativity, creativity through action, co-creativity in performance arts;

Somatic practices and cognition;

Physical intelligence and the intelligent body;

Practice as research, performance as research and practice research;

Cross-disciplinary endeavours: art-science-humanities-technology collaborations.
