Camilla Damkjaer is a Senior lecturer in dance theory and Head of research education at Stockholm University of the Arts. Her research concerns the methodologies of artistic research, the articulation of embodied knowledge within the arts, and the modes of consciousness in circus and dance practices. Damkjaer’s lecture-performances and publications have concerned the potential of Gilles Deleuze’s philosophy in the study of movement, the relation between scholarly and artistic methodologies, and close analysis of the embodied knowledge in circus practices. Her PhD thesis (The Aesthetics of Movement – Variations on Gilles Deleuze and Merce Cunningham, 2005) addresses the meeting point between dance and philosophy with an interpretation of Gilles Deleuze’s philosophy and the choreography of Merce Cunningham.
