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

Sun 9 May & Sat 28 August
11am – 4.30pm
Siobhan Davies Studios

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 experiment to see what happens if they try to centralise care by looking at what satisfies 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 research space is all about collectively holding, rather than filling, space and finding new ways of being together. It is intended for artists who identify as Crip, D/deaf, disabled or neurodivergent. 

Price: £50 flat fee (includes both days)
