Title

Taking the Next Step: Dance Advocacy in Greece

Abstract

At the beginning of June 2015, Athens was the site of an international dance studies conference entitled “Cut and Paste: Dance Advocacy in the Age of Austerity”. This event drew dancers, choreographers and scholars from around the world and was jointly produced by the Society of Dance History Scholars and the Congress on Research in Dance in collaboration with the Hellenic Centre of the International Theatre Institute. This essay reflects on that event, recounts its backstory, and proposes a series of future “next steps” that might help build a platform for dance advocacy in Greece.
