With insights from Rosemary Lee, Luca Silvestrini, Jeanefer Jean Charles, Satchie Noro, Stopgap and many more, the symposium will look at a range of practice in locations from urban to rural and in contexts that cover touring to site-specific to participant-led.
Join us at these stimulating panel sessions that aim to shine a spotlight on the wealth of outdoor dance practice. We’ll explore how this distinctive yet diverse field is contributing to the development of dance – bringing new audiences, new approaches and creating interventions that transform and disrupt our relationship with the world around us.
This event is aimed at dance & outdoor performance professionals, students & recent graduates.
