La Maison des Etudiants Suédois invites you to an interdisciplinary event

Fredriksson (SE), Steil (LU), Brandão (BR)

“There is a correlation between the way you use your body and what role you’re playing”

Friday 30 October 2015 at 20.00

20.00-20.10: Introduction to concept
20.10-20.45: Film screening of “The Economic Body”
20.45-21.30: Discussion and refreshments

Fredriksson, Steil and Brandão co-create their first interdisciplinary event on the intersection between dance and social science. The three met in the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris, and gathered in their mutual but diverse explorations of the fields. Fredriksson presents film excerpts from her interdisciplinary project “The Economic Body” (2014), and invites Steil and Brandão to elaborate on their current research and performance projects.

Anna-Mi Fredriksson is a choreographer and economist from Stockholm, Sweden. After working as a dancer with The English National Ballet, she studied at Stockholm School of Economics, where she co-founded the organisation Art Division, exploring and developing the relationship between arts, business and society. She is currently residing in Paris where she studies International Economic Policy at Sciences Po.

Laura Steil recently obtained her PhD in anthropology from the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes (EPHE). She spent the last decade researching the social and cultural dynamics of several “non-academic” dance scenes in France, most notably the hip-hop or “afro” scenes. She uses dance as an ethnographic research tool, considering the (dancing) body not only an object but a locus and vector of knowledge. She is currently a post-doctoral fellow at the GSRL (EPHE).

Carolina Brandão is a dancer and sociologist from São Paulo, Brazil. She was classically trained and worked in various contemporary projects throughout her career. After studying Social Sciences at the University of São Paulo, she alternated for 8 years between works in contemporary dance and in consulting, evaluating social projects. She is currently studying International Public Management at Sciences Po – Paris.
