Inside Out Festival 2015: Dance Umbrella: Body Politic

Event Details

23rd October, 2015
Great Hall, Strand Campus

Body Politic is a strand of debates focusing on key cultural issues affecting dance and performance led by Dance Umbrella and in partnership with Culture at King’s College London, the Arts and Humanities Festival at King’s, and Dance UK.

In this live and online discussion Dance Umbrella, a selection of King’s academics and art industry leaders, will examine the role of art in international relations, and unravel the relationship between policy makers and artists in fabricating identity. In Olympic ceremonies from London to Beijing we project an image of ourselves to the world. Dance Umbrella invite artists, policy makers, political thinkers and the public to ask questions about how culture is used by politicians and policy makers to define our national identity.

Chair: Dr. Daniel Glaser, Director Science Gallery at King’s College London.
