Crossing Borders 2018: 27 November 7-8:30pm - Moving Kinship: choreography, performance & the politi

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

Join us for the last in a series of discussion and debate at Independent Dance.

This conversation presents interdisciplinary choreographic, dance movement psychotherapy and neuroscientific practice, research and activism with people living with young onset dementia, their families and the artistic team Beatrice Allegranti Dance Theatre.

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.

Crossing Borders is a series of conversations taking place every Tuesday between 9 October and 27 November, with UK and international practitioners whose work understands movement and embodiment through a variety of different forms.

This year we invite speakers to share their process and practice with another practitioner, and together explore the notion of making change: how we acknowledge the past whilst imagining the future.
