Choreography Research Cluster hosts this one-day symposium bringing together artists, practitioners and researchers moving within the fields of dance, narrative, and somatic practices.
The symposium is aligned with the forthcoming special issue of the Journal of Dance and Somatic Practices (Intellect Publishing) 2019, which Akinleye and Kindred have been asked to co-edit.
This invitation to produce a special issue volume for the journal came as a result of the Wright-ing the Somatic: Dancing and Writing Professional Practice Symposium held at MDX in August 2016, and the 2nd symposium planned for Feb 2018 offers the possibility of extending conversations, developing practice and galvanizing the voices of artists/practitioners to contribute to the journal. The Symposium is also a collaboration with ISTD, One Dance UK and People Dancing.
Looking forward @JS_Diaspora opening a discussion with stimulus from award winning film #MyNameIs @mynameisdocu on 'Decolonising the self before we can decolonise HE & culture' @RADA_London via @InfoTCCE tomorrow as part of a broader event from 1pm to 3pm.
