trying in 2019 invites Shannon Stewart : WHAT DOES THIS BODY MAKE?

  • Siobhan Davies Dance 85 Saint George's Road London, England, SE1 6ER United Kingdom (map)


How do we conceive of self and body?  What scripts are at work? What role does our perception play? How does gender and identity perform itself at the perceptual level? How do these things implicate “other” and design they ways we relate to ourselves, each other and environment? What tools for transformation are already available or yet to be made in dance practices to disrupt hegemonic patterns and make new ones? 

CONTEXT: programmed by Janine Harrington and Christopher Matthews, building on a trial project hosted last Autumn at Chisenhale Dance Space.
