Performance, Scholarship, Presence aims to serve as a gathering point for critical practices and reflections in dance studies in Montreal. Supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council in 2017, with generous contributions from Slippage/Duke University and the Institute for Dance Studies/University of Toronto, a group of scholars, artists and curators joined forces, motivated by a deep love for dance as culture and expressive form and by the potentiality of movement to model social justice.  Under this rubric in 2017, two events took place: the third iteration of Duke University/Slippage’s Configurations: Performance Curation and Communities of Colour (June 1-2) and the first iteration of Focus on Dance Research (November 9–11).
