University of Exeter Digital Archives

This archive contains material which supported the work of the Center for New Dance Development (CNDO) at the turn of the century.

CNDO in Arnhem, Holland developed from its earlier presence in Amsterdam. It was later to become EDDC – the European Dance Development Center. The archive, constructed with assistance from members of EDDC where a mirror archive has been deposited, consists of recordings of interviews, performances and workshops both of the many contemporary dancers visiting the center, and its students. The dialogue with American artists was particularly strong, and many of CNDO’s students have themselves gone on to become known artists in their own right.

The archive is for research purposes only within the University of Exeter.

Date: 01 Jan 1992
Over twelve months, between 1991 and 1992, the Center for New Dance Development (CNDO) in Arnhem, The Netherlands and the Arts Documentation Unit, Exeter, U.K. collaborated to interview a cross-section of artists, associated with New Dance, who were visiting the Center from the United States and Europe, asking them to describe in detail their work and its leading edge - to articulate their concerns and to refer to the information they were drawing upon for its development. Artists were interviewed both by the Center's students and by its staff. The statements - often individual and detailed - provide a unique record of a dance community of people, thought and action moving towards the 21st century.
