Simon Whitehead - The Village Dance | Crossing Borders

A reflection on how bodies practice places and how these processes might be part of experiencing and re-imagining a village…

Simon talks about a current preoccupation with the realm of social ecology, on how people might practice home, make sense of their environment and interact together.

Movement artist Simon Whitehead works from his base in rural West Wales and internationally. He has developed a body of work from the pedestrian. Encountering situations at walking pace his works are place sensitive and often involve a process of ritual reconstruction through the body, live performance, sound and sensory media.

Furniture / Studies For Maynard – Saturday 19th November | 11am - 5.30pm
Performance installation - Studies for Maynard is a meditation on dislocation; the always unfinished practices of making home and sheltering. Home here is more than a place; it is a network of resonances, as fragile and changeable as weather.
Workshop - Furniture emerges from the ideas informing Studies for Maynard. It asks if there can be an ecological practice embedded in existing together and with the objects and life forms around us.
