what_now festival 2014


what_now 2014 re-imagines the idea of a festival by hosting a group of 20 dance artists to explore processes of moving through collective practice and theory. What moves us, and do how we articulate and think through movement? The audience is invited to listen in, converse, watch, read, and share — to look for things that happen, and be a part of what is happening. We're excited to announce the four guest speakers of the what_now festival: Derek McCormack, Caroline Bergvall, Joris Vlieghe and Laura Cull. In public talks on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, they will look at the body's potential in movement through different lenses — language, philosophy, geography, education and performance. Each talk will be followed by a joint session to take in and investigate the speakers' propositions. Derek McCormack: Thinking and moving with atmospheric things | Friday 11 April | 7pm Caroline Bergvall: 26 writing joints | Saturday 12 April | 2pm Joris Vlieghe: BEING-ENTIRELY-FLESH | Saturday 12 April | 7:30pm Laura Cull: A(n Interrupted) Lecture on Attention in 9 Parts | Sunday 13 April | 3pm Price: £6/£4 each £10/£7 for any two talks £18/£12 for all four talks Booking is highly recommended , please call 020 7091 9650 to purchase your tickets.
