Research Space | Cripping Space & Time with Dan Daw, Kitty Fedorec & Tanja Erhart

Sun 9 May & Sat 28 Aug 2021
11am – 4.30pm
At Siobhan Davies Studios, London

This research space is for artists who identify as Crip, D/deaf, disabled or neurodivergent only 

How can the disabled body be empowered to redesign space and redefine time for itself in order to get what the body and mind need? How can we bring the wholeness of our body-minds into the space we share and dance as a catalyst of our individual needs and need for collective care?

Dan Daw has joined forces with Kitty Fedorec and Tanja Erhart to offer an experiment to see what might happen if they try to centralise care by looking at what satisfies us as a collective of bodies in space and time.

By diving into each other’s lived experiences and sharing tools or life-hacks, we can offer a playground for our desires of belonging and our longings to create space for pleasures of what makes us feel good, happy, joyful, content, satisfied and even free.

This weekend is all about collectively holding space, not filling space and finding new ways of being together. What if we can all take control of our own experiences
