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.
The third in this series of lecture performances', Ivey Wawn combines knowledge from science, politics and popular culture to reveal how the social choreographies we live within might be something we can also reconfigure. Ivey draws on poetics from observations of microbial and economic processes to develop choreographic blueprints for the human scale. Her current research considers how speculative practices, especially those concerning debt, manipulate the relations between past, present and future.
