are pleased to invite you to attend the first edition of THE ETHNOCHOREOLOGICAL  COLLOQUIUM ,,ANCA GIURCHESCU” , Cluj-Napoca, taking place between 27 th– 28 th of October 2018, in the venue of the Letters Faculty of Babeș- Bolyai University, Horea street, number 31, Cluj-Napoca, Romania. 

The colloquium aims  to assume and valorize, in a creative manner, the intellectual heredity of Anca Giurchescu, the most important Romanian ethnochoreologist and one of the most important members of the international community of ethnochoreologists, and also, a founder member in  Etnocor. Centre For Ethnochoreological Studies.

The event is scientifically coordinated by Phd. Theresa Buckland (University of Roehampton, London, UK),  Phd. Colin Quigley (University of Limerick, Limerick, Ireland)  and Phd. Neagota Bogdan (Babeș-Bolyai University Cluj-Napoca, Romania).

Subjects and Themes of the Colloquium

1. EDUCATION AND CHOREUTIC FOLKLORISM: IDEOLOGIZATION, THEORIZING, EDUCATIONAL AND CULTURAL POLITICS.

The detachment of folkloric dance from its source culture was accompanied by an inclusion of traditional dance in various paradigms of folklorism, and by the development of ethnochoreology. In both these routes, the modalities of relating to the central object (dance culture) were influenced by different ideologies and theories, passed through the filters of cultural and educational policies.

Participants in the colloquium are therefore invited to explore the links and relationships which arose on the axis: traditional culture of dance – folklorism – education, and the connections that these concepts  have had, over time, with the ideologies and the theories that have marked the history of the last two centuries.

Starting from there, we have formulated a number of possible key questions. How did these relationships influence the development of the various academic research schools? How did they influence folklorism and the ways of valorisation (especially on stage)? How have the accents been distributed in all these relationships on the given axis, and how did these accents lead to the modelling of the specificity of an academic tradition and the particularities of local / regional folklorism? How have these relationships been shaped by the political contexts through which they have passed?

LUDUS ET SACER – „DIACHRONICAL INTERTEXTUALITIES” AND CULTURAL ARCHAEOLOGY

The section is dedicated to both the diachrony of choreutical practices (coagulated in historically and epistemically salient forms) and non-canonical approaches to dance, coming from areas of research neighbouring the field of ethnology (such as: social and cultural anthropology, the history of religions, the history of ideas, historical anthropology, archaeology, epigraphy, philosophy).

A special place is dedicated to dances as experiences of the sacred, to the choreutical practices linked to religious contexts, ecstatic dances, therapeutic dances, dances with magic purposes, etc.

This endeavour is complementary to ethno-choreology, and aims at retrieving the holistic dimensions of dance as a plenary cultural expression, in which various languages and purposes fuse together, investing human corporality with the liminal status of imago mundi et dei. Far beyond its concrete ethno-choreutical determinations, dance brings together multiple creative levels, while remaining the best accomplished expression of the gestual pole of humanity (André Leroi-Gourhan). The generous hermeneutic perspective we propose therefore unifies the many methods of approaching the choreutic phenomenon, as well as heterogenous documentary materials, used in the archaeological reconstruction of local and regional choreutic expressions.
