Or do they just leave and do other stuff? is the outcome of a directive to the students of the third year of SNDO to create a new work for the Danstheater in de Theaterschool, and to think through the programmes curatorial decisions in conversation with Frédérique Bergholtz and Susan Gibb of If I Can’t Dance as part of the course ‘Curating and Performance’.
‘Curating and Performance’ is an SNDO – School for New Dance Development course commissioning If I Can’t Dance to respond to SNDO course conceptualization, intentions and general outline, and which aims to engage students in the lively contemporary debates surrounding curating performance in practical and theoretical settings.
