artist as consultant with Tate n Lyle

  • London United Kingdom (map)

Tate n Lyle invited me to work with them at the end of the tax year. Actually that is just context. The invitation was an open one, to interact or intervene in their practice under the guise of “consultant”. So far this has involved email exchange, conversation, facilitated discussion, project mapping exercises, lists and matrices, research and thinking with: the figures of Robin Hood, Maid Marian and the merry men, Nottingham, the forest…

We are working in consultation. Expect to hear more soon.

An hour-long showcase featuring two U.K. based artists on Jan 6th 12 noon and Jan 7th 4pm.

Matthias Sperling
With both playfulness and seriousness, the solo No-How Generator embarks from the question: If knowledge-generation is a fundamentally embodied process, can we see and experience it happening in a dance performance?

to Oct 17

Shorelines Research Residency @ Cove Park, Scotland

Writer/dramaturg Ruth Little returns to Cove Park with maker-curators Amanda ThompsonDeirdre NelsonBen WildeClaire CunninghamKarine Polwart and Janine Harrington, for a period of place-based research on the craft and practice of thresholding.

Together Ruth and the maker-curators will develop the framework for a cross-arts international residency in 2020. The Shorelines residency will involve artists who make work on social and environmental thresholds, in particular at the place where land meets sea. The residency is an exploration of the art of thresholding, exploring the richness, complexity and vulnerability of edges and intertidal zones, and their metaphorical implications for our times. Loch Long’s shoreline will be both lab and studio for empirical and creative research and making, for new forms of trans-disciplinary collaboration and the sharing of local knowledge and tradition.

#wetoo & ENGAGEMENT, Brussels

#wetoo & ENGAGEMENT, Brussels

In the wake of #MeToo, Ilse Ghekiere published the article #Wetoo: What Dancers Talk About When They Talk About Sexism. Her research into sexism in the Belgian dance sector – and the debate it instigated – developed into the anti-sexism campaign ENGAGEMENT. This evening will feature several artist-activists who are coming to talk about the steps that have been taken and the artistic strategies to tackle the abuse of power, discrimination, and inappropriate behaviour.

I will be speaking at this event following involvement in thinking around #MeToo and the specific/ general expression of this in dance scene(s).
