Abstract [sv]

This is a study that looks at the teaching process of making a dance show within the Community School of Arts from a posthumanist perspective. How does the matter the students meet and the dance teacher uses make a difference?

My interest in this question came to grow from my dance related work in a pre-school context where matter is given importance in relation to how children gets possibilities to experience and learn. The research material for this study, however, was generated from the Community School of Arts in Stockholm.

The study identifies the matter that is making a difference for the dance teaching and learning in a process towards making a dance show at the Community School of Arts of Stockholm. The matter of importance identified was connected to the subject areas Body, Music/Sound, Clothes, Light and Space. The study investigates and articulates performative force between human and non-human matter, and further how the students and the dance teacher perceive this performative force. The study discusses how dance teaching and learning can benefit from a more reflective use of matter. In connection to the posthumanist approach the study takes a stand for, I argue that knowledge-making in the Community School of Arts can be seen from a rhizomatic perspective. That implies that learning the arts at the Community School of Arts can give students the opportunity to experience art from their different points of interest. To actively acknowledge the performative force of the different material matter involved in the process of creating a dance show, give students a way to develop dance joy. I argue that a more reflective and conscious use of matter can positively transform the dance teaching and learning of today. In a wider perspective the matter of matter in dance teaching and learning is a question that fosters environmental consciousness building on the sense that we share and are part of the same world, where matter matters.
