Gilsamara Moura gives workshop and lecture at the Dance Graduations Meeting


Porto Alegre-RS


The Meeting is a partnership between the Graduation Courses in Dance of the universities of RS; establishes a network between teachers, students, graduates, professionals and the community. Each edition is organized by a course, hosted at a different institution, as a way to foster this partnership. In its V edition, the Meeting is hosted at UFRGS and joins the Salão de Dança, which is in its VIII edition. The union of the two events is an attempt to join forces, since both have similar purposes.

As the theme of the event, we felt the need to discuss the issue of the dance labor market and what we are called “free culture”. First, because dance graduations - 18 years after the first dance graduation was implemented in RS - have trained professionals for the job market. Thus, a closer look is needed for this. Second, because there is constantly a demand for unpaid or underpaid work for dancing. The proposal is not to defend or combat gratuity, but to raise questions and question what has been developing from these perspectives.

- How does the gratuity of courses, workshops and shows reverberate in the beneficiaries?
- How has dance education approached ethics and respect in the dance field?
- How can the class be a possible starting point for building dance ethics?
- How has the counterpart of funded cultural projects been demanded and carried out?
- With the creation of free university courses in dance, what responsibility is there in occupying a public place?
- How is dance perceived and validated by the community and the general public?
- What is the artist's responsibility in mediating the work with an audience?
- How to enhance the socially transforming factor of dance and validate it as an agent of change?
- How are we perceiving the idea of ​​dance as work in the communities where we are working?
