Beatrice Allegranti and Jonathan Silas will be moving between the borders of neuroscience, choreography, feminism and dance movement psychotherapy.


This conversation presents interdisciplinary choreographic, dance movement psychotherapy and neuroscientific practice, research and activism with people living with young onset dementia, their families and a team of dance artists.
Informed by feminist new materialism and cognitive neuroscience, we will explore the ethics and politics of creating dance not only for an audience but with and through audiences. As such, we propose ‘moving kinship’ as an integrated artistic practice that enables us to think about human and more-than-human-bodies and worlds simultaneously. We will include performative vignettes as ways to think through kinship with/in the choreographic process, performance and, for the living of everyday life.
