Jane Bacon and Vida Midgelow, Directors of the Choreographic Lab, invite you to consider the processes of coming into language and dancing.  Sharing their current research and creative practice Jane and Vida reflect on the influences of the psyche and phenomenology of lived experience as the basis from which to reconsider writing-dancing and bodymind practices. The event is open to all and includes opportunities for discussion.

Duration 2 hours



Saturday 1st June 2013, 
Chichester University, Bishop Otter Campus, Chichester.
9.30a.m. – 5.00 p.m.

The Dance and Performing Arts Department at Chichester University invite researchers, practitioners, artists and post-graduate researchers to a 1 day symposium that will explore, celebrate, problematize and articulate notions of experiencing, encountering, articulating and ‘performing’ place through creative arts inquiry.

The symposium will include installation and performance work, academic paper presentations, informal discussions and opportunities to engage in dialogue with colleagues interested in exploring practices and processes of experiencing and ‘performing’ place, and associated notions of (amongst others) site-specificity, embodiment, mobility, location, space, place and performativity.

The symposium aims to stimulate a sharing of knowledge and ideas in an informal, playful and participatory manner.
