Research Space is a newish strand of ID’s programme that creates bespoke formats with artists, opening their research to others through dancing, making and talking.
We usually support four or five of these research spaces a year. Each is collaboratively designed with the artist in relation to the questions they explore, the participants who might engage, and the economic model it most appropriately takes, within the context that ID can offer.

Everything to be believed, is an image of the truth (W. Blake)
As part of Kinaesthesia, in partnership with Middlesex University, Philippe Blanchard leads a five-day research space that combines somatic practices with questions about spectatorship. Using the camera and projector as mediating tools this research raises questions about the view that one places on others, and subtly questions viewers’ right and obligations to act and to react.
The work will involve practical, experiential combination of embodied moving, connecting to skeletal structures and bodily systems; playful seeing and witnessing; and using the technology as a tool to question somatic meaning-making.
Open to people of broad movement experience interested in research and spectatorship.
Kinaesthesia is part-funded by the Faculty of Arts and Creative Industries Middlesex University
