9 & 10 December 2016

a223e4c8-8e1d-4b74-95fc-544eadab03f5Body of Ideas is curated by Critical Path Associate Artist Samantha Chester and EOI’s are now open for 10-15 performers makers, dancers and directors to participate in the two days provocation.

Invited artists Lee Wilson, Angela Goh, Tim Darbyshire and Frances Barbe will work with participants exploring some thoughts on these provocations from the perspective of their current practices. They will engage with the themes in an act of play, in an act of violence, in an act of exploration, in an act of curiosity.

This investigation will be guided by four provocations that unpinned Chester’s travel as part of her Churchill Fellowship in 2014 and her subsequent research from 2015:

  • The Body as an Idea
  • The Body as an act of Impossibility
  • The Body as a system that fails
  • The Body as a Dilemma
