 The Errol Barrow Centre for Creative Imagination (EBCCI) of The University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, Barbados, invites the international community of dancers, choreographers and scholars to the Third International Dance Conference in beautiful Barbados from May 23rd to 26th, 2018.

The First International Dance Conference and  Season of Dance held in 2014, closed the annual International Diaspora Arts Festival of the EBCCI. Its introduction sought to address the dance festival void in Barbados, showcasing the crème de la crème of dance from the cultural landscape of Barbados and the full geo-political region, in a non-competitive space, outside of NIFCA and the Community Independence Competitions.
The Second International Conference and Season of Dance for 2016 was staged on the eve of the summer festival season of Barbados. This creative season, developed camaraderie within the dance circle outside of their independent end of term productions and created relationships throughout the international dance community.

The highly successful and enjoyable inaugural season of dance, engages the regional academy of dance, through not only collective staged work, but a Symposia of Dance, which provides international scholarly and creative input to the programme, through workshops and guest performances.

We welcome dance professionals, multidisciplinary scholars and practitioners from around the world to contribute to dynamic discussions and cultural encounters on the topic, “Decolonizing Bodies: Engaging Performance”.

For further information on the Conference and the Season of Dance, please contact Conference Chair, Ms. Neri Torres at (246) 417-4776 or through email address neri.torres@cavehill.uwi.edu
