Abstract

Using artistic modes of research representation allows for a different way of sharing findings and may enhance the likelihood of making an impact (negative or positive) on the audience and consequently, on the artists and researchers involved. The concept of 'dangerous emotional terrain' is used in this presentation to describe the potentially negative impacts of using dance to disseminate qualitative research. We focus on the impact on artists embodying research depicting difficult lived experiences and the strategies our team used to mitigate difficulties. We identify four strategies to address the potential for negative emotional impact.
