Conference Title: Asia Pacific International Dance Conference 2011 (APIDC 2011)
Conference Theme: Hybridity in Dance: Researching, Performing, and Writing Old and New Genres

Convener and Organiser: Cultural Centre University of Malaya
Co-Organiser: National Department for Culture and Arts, Ministry of Information, Communication and Culture; MyDance Alliance and World Dance Alliance Asia Pacific

It is hereby proposed that the Cultural Centre University of Malaya will convene and organise an international dance conference entitled Asia Pacific International Dance Conference 2011 (APIDC 2011) from 21st – 25th September 2011.  The proposed theme for the said conference is Hybridity in Dance: Researching, Performing, and Writing Old and New Genres. This conference is to be co-organised by the National Department for Culture and Arts, Ministry of Information, Communication and Culture; MyDance Alliance; and the World Dance Alliance Asia Pacific in tandem with the proposed MyDance Festival 2011 and the World Dance Alliance Asia Pacific Annual General Meeting in Kuala Lumpur, which will take place within the time frame of the proposed conference.

 

This conference will situate and position the Cultural Centre University of Malaya as the premier academic and scholarly centre for dance studies in Malaysia and one of the best in the Asia Pacific Region. The present dance degree program (undergraduate and post graduate programs) will benefit tremendously with the convergence of dance scholars in the proposed international dance conference. The Cultural Centre has set a good precedent as a dance studies centre when it organised and convened the first local dance conference Diversity in Motion in 2003, which was co-organised by the Cultural Centre University of Malaya and MyDance Alliance as part of the MyDance Festival 2003. Following the success of the 2003 event, two international dance conferences were curated in 2005 and 2008 by the Cultural Centre University of Malaya in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture, Arts and Heritage Malaysia. The 2005 Asia Pacific International Dance Conference event was organized as part of the University of Malaya’s Centennial Celebration in partnership with the World Dance Alliance Asia Pacific Annual General Meeting while the 2007 event was organized with the International Council of Music Study Group on Ethnochoreology.
