Christopher Matthews

Choreographer, performer and visual artist Christopher Matthews discusses his new work Act 3 with choreographer and academic Nicola Conibere.

Act 3 is the final instalment in a trilogy of works by Christopher Matthews, which considers queer masculinity in dance, desire, body image and working-class dance histories. Continuing his studies of intimacy between two figures, Act 3 is an exploration of queer desire in later life.

This talk is presented by Sadler’s Wells as part of Elixir Festival 2024, with partnership support from Independent Dance.
