Crossing Borders 2012 - 16 October 2012
Dance Artists participating in These associations at Tate Modern (2012) and Move: Choreographing You at Hayward Gallery (2011) will share how rethinking their practice emerges from these different contexts of performance. This conversation is chaired by dance artist Nicola Conibere.
Nicola Conibere is a London based choreographer and academic researcher whose work explores questions of spectatorship. She is interested in how seeing and being seen by others is fundamental to performance practices and to social life, creating works that seek to acknowledge the exchange between performers and audience, consider processes of recognition between people and the part of theatricality in such relationships. She creates work for theatres and art galleries, and is an Associate Artist at Dance4 (www.dance4.org.uk). Much of her current artistic work is contributing to a practice based PhD based at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London. Nicola is currently developing a new work which will be shown as part of Dance4’s Nottdance Festival in March 2013.
