Independent Dance Crossing Borders talks 2014

Independent Dance Crossing Borders Talks 2014 - Nicola Diamond

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.

Nicola Diamond | 4th November | 7 - 8.30pm

Drawing on psychoanalysis, philosophy, neuroscience and social theory, this talk will look at the interface between bodies, music and movement as the basis of non-verbal language, including an exploration of the relationship between biology of others and cultural life.

The Body speaks what cannot be said in words, through touch, in visual ways, in action, through rhythm and movement. The body is the means by which we connect with one another and the world in which we live...

My book Between Skins is an interdisciplinary approach to the body. It explores the interrelationship between mind-body and environment. The book examines how relations with others and social influences effect bodily experience even at the biological level, how unconscious communication is expressed in bodily ways and can be considered a form of language. In the book I relate the exploration of the body to an understanding of how people express emotional pain and difficulties in bodily states and symptoms. How does this multifaceted model of the body yield insight into dance as a profound form of affective communication.
