Independent Dance Crossing Borders talks 2014
The Crossing Borders talks feature UK and international practitioners, whose work understands movement and embodiment through a variety of different forms, and invites them to share their process and practice.
This year’s series explores the different ways of working and thinking through the body. The programme will touch on themes such as contexts of art practice, self-censorship, contemporary psychoanalysis, and the wider concerns of how we live together.
Alice Chauchat | Tuesday 16 December | 7 - 8.30pm
In this lecture-performance I present a series of propositions for ways of coming together; different ethos of collaboration which I've been experimenting with in my professional life.
Visiting past situations, I want to make public some concerns and imaginations that feed and are fed by work, but that tend to remain in the backstage of performances. Across the various projects (or other structures built to facilitate forms of exchange within the performing arts field) and practices that nourish the presentation, issues recur: the role of speech and agreement, the conditions for hospitality, the necessary distance between people, the drive for change, the redistribution of authority and responsibility. The projects, my experiences, act as thinking tools and material.
