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.

Independent Dance Crossing Borders talks 2014

This year’s series will open on the 30th September, and 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.

Steve Valk | Tuesday 30 September | 7 – 8.30pm

Negative Knowledge: is dance the art form of the 20th century?
Contemporary dance dramaturge Steve Valk outlines a vision of dance which, having moved beyond the architecture of its stationary historical universe, no longer understands itself as an art form, but as a technology of the self at the edges of modern consciousness. In addition, Valk introduces the emerging field of Social Choreography as a real-world project of transformative aesthetic practice.

Steve Valk is a contemporary dance dramaturge, visual artist and designer, and currently the director of the first Institute of Social Choreography in Frankfurt Germany.
