Dance as Critical Heritage: Archives, Access, Action

Dance as Critical Heritage is an interdisciplinary platform within the Staging the Archives cluster, Critical Heritage Studies (CHS) at Gothenburg University. Its purpose is to propel trans-disciplinary research on performing arts that have been marginalized in the historiographical canon. One example is the dance group Rubicon, led by the choreographers Eva Ingemarsson, Gun Lund and Gunilla Witt. During the 1980s the art scene in Gothenburg exploded into a multi-faceted, non-institutional, cross-boundaried experiment. This development was not primarily initiated by the established art institutions of the day, but driven by so called “free” operators. When they emerged dressed sharply in yellow rainwear, the dance group Rubicon became one of the leading proponents of the social and cultural experiment. Funded by Carina Ari Memorial Foundation and the Department of Cultural Sciences, a first project aiming at activating the Rubicon archives was conducted by Astrid von Rosen. In the autumn of 2015 the scholarly work will be linked to a visiting researcher period at University College London (UCL).
