Candoco In Dialogue publication

Candoco Dance Company invited me to curate the 2014/15 series of their In Dialogue programme. What arose from the invitation took the form of three key projects conceived in response to landscapes of dance and disability; On Being an ArtistWhat Words Can Do, and a two day symposium – An Evolving Art Form, each contributing to our conversation from a variety of angles. 

 We’ve drawn together these strands of conversation in this online publication (conceived and created by myself and Brian Hartley) draws together written reflections, poetry, film and imagery arising over the past year. Contributors include Marc Brew, Claire Cunningham, Caroline Bowditch, Rosemary Lee and many more.

“It is a workbook for thinking and doing. Full of words and images, questions, thoughts and provocations, with space to read, write or speak yourself in.”

From 5 minutes with Caroline Bowditch ‘On Being An Artist’ to half an hour with Dr. R. Justin Hunt exploring the concept of ‘Wording Choreography’, the publication has been designed for you to dip into at your leisure. Enjoy.

The publication has been designed to help you navigate the workbook with ease. Use the tool bar at the bottom of the issuu page to find your way around.

Candoco Dance Company’s In Dialogue programme aims to advance the level and clarity of artistic and critical dialogue of work with or by disabled artists. The projects reach new audiences in a range of contexts through a series of live events, online documentation and bespoke projects.
