Notation Series is an initiative to exchange issues and projects dealing with a broad idea of Dance Notation. Here analysis, re-presentation, preservation, re-enactment and re-interpretation go together with the creation of documents. Scores, interaction, writing, reading, re-enactment, systems and models, artistic questions and multimedia environments have been welcomed themes during the past encounters.

Notation Series #4 was held as part of the Euopean research project Labo21 and proposed two different encounters, June 21st and June 29th. Themes of these encounters were (1) Dance Research and (2) Dance Research within Education.
This is the documentation of the first encounter on Dance Research.
The gathering aimed not only to present the current state of the art, but also to provide space for discussion among those interested to contribute to the future developments of Dance Research.
The program consisted of a mix of presentations, working groups, experiencing of tools and installations, and participation in a performative event.

1. On Archives with Robin Boast (University of Amsterdam), Vivian van Saaze (Maastricht University) and Sarah Whatley (Coventry University)
2. On the creation of digital tools for dance with Scott deLahunta (Motion Bank), Sarah Fdili Alaoui (Simon Fraser University) and Frederic Bevilacqua (IRCAM France)
3. On new ideas of notation and repertoire with Francesca Magnini (Airdanza), Emilie Gallier (Post-cie) and Zeynep Gunduz (AHK Amsterdam)
4. On interdisciplinary work and the role of the institutions with Corinne Jola (Abertay University), Konstantina Georgelou (Utrecht University and ArtEZ) and Maaike Bleeker (Utrecht University).

Notation Series #4 is the last research event that Bertha Bermudez Pascual organized for ICKamsterdam before moving to the south of France and served as wrap up and conclusion of her many years of contribution and intense involvement with dance company Emio Greco | PC and ICKamsterdam.
Labo21 is supported by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) of the European Commission.
