Constanze Schellow


Constanze Schellow (Dr. phil.) teaches and researches as Junior Professor on cultures of knowledge and mediation in dance at the Center for Contemporary Dance at the Cologne University of Music and Dance. She is particularly interested in projects that question the body and movement in their social and reflexive possibilities in a wide variety of social contexts, and that stimulate dialogues from dance with practitioners in other fields. From 2018-2021, she led the international research project "Theoretical turn? On the institutionalization of theory/s in contemporary dance education" funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research in collaboration with the dance programs at SNDO Amsterdam, Parts Brussels, Uniarts Stockholm, HZT Berlin, among others.
