culture of knowledge. These are major themes that refer to a long and complex history of interdisciplinary academic discourse. The social-science perspective, which I would like to contribute, makes it possible to narrow down the extremely wide-ranging subject of ›dance knowledge‹ although – due to the very sophisticated sociological theories of its history – I am only able to outline a few ideas for a social- science theory of dance knowledge here. What is special about the social-science perspective on dance know- ledge is the fact that it considers the

underscoring the deployment of symbolic action and negotiation of collective representations per- vading all levels of social life and now often deemed increasingly distinctive of our times – if also deeply transformed, among else, by the expansion of the in- ternet (Brizarielli/Armano 2017; Ezrahi, 2015; Hénaff and Strong 2001).3 From the point of view of current sociological theory, at any rate, theatre as a metaphor is still very much at work in shaping our thinking, as the focus is not any more, or at least not only, on what used to be subsumed under the notion of

Notes on Contributors | 329 Rudi Laermans teaches sociological theory at the Catholic University of Leuven. He is also a regular guest teacher at P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels. His current research work deals with social systems theory, post-Foucauldian critical theory and contemporary art theory. Scott deLahunta works as a

partici- pants to preenact the complexities of contemporary societal affairs. 2 THEORETICAL BACKGROUND When we first started to investigate ways of participatory storytelling, we were fol- lowing the assumption that sociological theory had already disseminated into the field of participatory storytelling. Much to our astonishment, we discovered that if sociology had inspired the literature it mostly supported either discursive instances or critical societal theory (Friedrich/Kramer 2008; Leeker/Schipper/Beyes 2016). Yet, we identified a lack of micro

know retrospectively. But while these events are happening, there is no question that they offer new forms of praxis. Their call is to participate; not just to interpret. The language of the new culture is struggle. It is: Action! Bibliography Abbott, Andrew (2014): The Problem of Excess. In: Sociological Theory 32 (1), p. 1-26.

. Thus, the performative is embedded between prac­ tices and these orders, opening up a perspective that microsocio­ logical positions in practice theory neglect or even reject. For micro­ sociological theories locate the mode of execution in practice alone; they inquire into performatively generated knowledge and the re­ lationship between the success and failure of the act of execution. This shifts attention to the relationship between stability and in­ stability, thus taking a perspective that conceptualizes the social as something dynamic and concentrates on the
