Wow! Move at the Hayward Gallery in London looks like an amazing exhibition! Participation, experiential activities, dance, with projects by killer artists and choreographers? Sounds like fun!
I’m especially curious about the cognitive scientists in dialogue with choreographers:
Move: Weekend is a three-day celebration of visual art, dance and performance across Southbank Centre from Friday 26 – Sunday 28 November. The programme is part of the exhibition Move: Choreographing You at the Hayward Gallery, on show until 9 January 2011.
The weekend features talks, discussions and performances exploring the historic and current relationship between visual arts, performance and dance. Cognitive scientists Scott deLahunta and David Kirsh are joined by Simone Forti and Sian Ede to discuss how we explore the world with bodies in the context of choreographic practice. Franz Erhard Walther is joined by philosopher of mind Alva Noë and choreographers Yvonne Rainer and Siobhan Davies, to discuss distinctive perceptions of time and space in visual arts and dance. Andre Lepecki leads a discussion foregrounding dance and other structured movement systems as vehicles for political and social critique, with Tania Bruguera, Bojana Cvejic and Xavier Le Roy. Yvonne Rainer talks about her practice evolving from choreography to filmmaking with Chantal Pontbriand. William Forsythe, Tino Sehgal and Janine Antoni discuss what parallels can be drawn between choreography and an extended notion of sculpture.
