REPRESENTATION OF THE PEOPLE: ACT
Celebrating 100yrs since some women achieved the right to vote and equal suffrage was achieved for men, we ask the question: Where are we now?
Groundwork Pro is hosting a series of discussions/events to continue important conversations around gender equality and examine action in our art form.
Next in the series we invite:
JAMILA JOHNSON-SMALL: PRACTICES TOWARDS TRANSFORMATION
Last Yearz Interesting Negro makes dance shows. One of their current works is BASICTENSION, started in 2017 it is a Contemporary Dance performance, from a place of asking how/whether their black body can actually engage with the aesthetic value system of what is known as contemporary dance. Wondering how to arrive at ‘new’ aesthetics, considering exit strategies, how to design environments and performance scores that might support shifts in perspective and allow access to different ways of thinking-doing-being-seeing-feeling? How to mobilise and re-think words that have become so loaded with histories that they cannot hold what they should but are still projected onto, and carried by, our bodies? How to carry all the conflicts and contradictions and shed the compromises?
