Title: Enabling dialogue between disciplines

I recently curated an evening of live art at Yorkshire Dance (www.yorkshiredance.com) in their Friday Firsts programme (3.3.12), entitled ‘Live Art Meets Choreography’. This was an opportunity for me to enable dialogue between two performance disciplines dance and live art; two contexts I show my work in. The event successfully brought in an audience with live art and dance interests.

I was excited to see what happened when you ask 5 performance practitioners; Gillian Dyson, Victoria Firth, Sohail Khan, Duncan Marwick and Adam Young – to shine a light on a very subjective definition of choreography (from a discipline which they don’t come from). Each of them presented a newly developed work for the first time, perhaps it will have been the only time.
