Data Embodiment

View all CfD Projects

What affordances, opportunities, and challenges emerge when interpreting data through the body using dance? The Data Dance team worked with a contemporary dance company in a series of workshops that guided participants through activities aimed at creating space for embodied engagement with data. From these workshops, the team designed a toolkit to guide other researchers, practitioners, and communities through using movement as inquiry, approaching data together, and fostering data curiosity. Data Dance is part of the larger Data Moves project at the Co-Laboratory for Data Impact that explores participatory embodied data practice more broadly including dance, theater, and other somatic approaches.
