Dance, Intimacy and the Civic #4: Who belongs, where and how with Brian Lobel, Denise Rowe, Rebecca Swift and Nic Conibere (2022)

Chaired by Nic Conibere, Brian Lobel, Denise Rowe and Rebecca Swift discuss how their practices generate a sense of collective action and belonging. It invites speculation on how and why people gather together to forge a sense of togetherness through rituals, as spirituality and to access a sense of collective consciousness, enabling thinking and feeling beyond the self. The talk navigates choreographic forms of conversation and the performative and even political nature of collective action.

Who belongs, where and how is part of ID’s talk series Dance, Intimacy Civic produced in partnership with Sadler’s Wells and University of Roehampton.
