Seventeen research and notation projects benefitted from a dance research and heritage grant in June 2017. Here, researchers and notators present the current state of their work. Exploring aesthetics as varied as classic Khmer dance, the Sega Tipik of Mauritius, contemporary dances (Gourfink, Wampach, de Nercy/Dizien), some deepen our knowledge of historical dances while others explore the geographies and stratigraphies of dance. From Sacre #2 after Nijinski to Nazirkom, a comic Uyghur dance, these projects cast light on certain aspects and interests in the research into modern dance, in all its aesthetic, historical and geographical heterogeneity: from the infernal ballets of Jean-Philippe Rameau to the question of archiving in the form of a reactivation or reasoned inventory of collections (Francine Lancelot, Wilfride Piollet and Jean Guizerix, Deborah Hay, DD Dorvillier), from the original encounter between François Malkovsky and Pierre Conté to the study of the archives of the notator Conté and the university professor Robert Crang, while taking in a reflexion situated in acts within a transitional space, the threshold and the trace.
