Featuring Julie-Anne Long, Bhenji Ra and Ivey Wawn, Talking Bodies is a unique series of lecture performances that aim to get underneath the skin of dance. Tracing connections between real-life stories, the big topics of our time and dance, this series affords new insights into the evocative and often daring ways dance artists use the body to challenge how we see the world.
In Talking Bodies we get underneath the skin of dance.
The second in this series of ‘dance-lectures’, Bhenji Ra reflects on the personal and political histories at the centre of her work spanning dance, choreography, installation and moving image. With a practice that is as seductive as it is politicised, Bhenji shares some insights into the ways in which her work is pushing back against colonial and canonical perspectives, while collapsing borders between art, club, community, dance and politics.
