Dr. Karen Nicole Barbour

I am a lecturer in contemporary dance and choreography at The University of Waikato, New Zealand. My focus as a dance educator is to provide opportunities for students to express themselves through personal movement and contemporary dance, to utilise improvisational and choreographic principles and structures to create their own dances, to learn performance and production skills, and to appreciate diversity in dance. I am interested in fostering qualitative dance research, specifically in choreographic practice, contemporary dance, improvisation, environmental dance and video dance. My PhD research was in embodied ways of knowing and women's solo dance, and subsequent research interests lie in collaborative artistic research, feminist choreographic practices and alternative writing practices to express lived experiences. I also dance and choreograph freelance.
