Christopher will be in discussion with artist Shannon Stewart and dance historian Arabella Stanger. They will explore the intersections of Matthews’ and Stewart’s work in relation to class structure, gender, sexuality, desire and body image. Their practices will be contextualised through lenses of dance/ art histories and place guided by the following questions:
Who gets to dance?
Where is the dance happening?
What is it about?
Why does it matter?*
Before and after the discussion there will be opportunities to explore Matthew’s digital installation Walk 4 Me
