What remains... Anatomy of an Artist: a festival of 10 new works

  • 21 May 2016 2-9pm
  • 22 May 2016 12-6pm

Independent Dance (ID) and Siobhan Davies Dance present the sixth edition of WHAT festival, What remains…Anatomy of an Artist, featuring work by some the UK’s most exciting contemporary dance artists including: Julie Cunningham, Air Field (Ian Spink, Bill Thompson and Alan Paterson), Matthias Sperling, My Johansson, Jamie Atherton, Rajni Shah, Carolyn Roy, Colin Poole and Simon Ellis, Katrina Brown & Rosanna Irvine and Michaela Ross & Olga Masleinnikova.

What remains…celebrates the way in which the practice of others stimulates, refracts and transforms our own ideas, attitudes and processes. Inspired by French forensic scientist Edmond Locard’s basic principle that “every contact leaves a trace”, each of the featured works examines the anatomy of an artist – their methods, inspirations, influences, biography, or their actual physicality. Among the chosen subjects are Kate Tempest, Fred Herko, Samuel Beckett and Steve Paxton.

Taking Apart Togetherness: The Art and Science of Being a Group

  • 27 May 2016 7-10pm

What might science have to say about why dancing together is such a universal human activity across all cultures? And how might artists and scientists work together to address such questions?

Choreographer Matthias Sperling, social psychologist Daniel Richardson and cognitive neuroscientist Guido Orgs introduce their collaborative research project investigating moving together in groups in this lecture demonstration. Combining choreographic practice and scientific methods, they studied what it means to move in synchrony, how it affects those who do it (performers) and those who watch it (perceivers).


Admission: £5
