Spectatorship and choreographic practice with Nicola Conibere (2011)

Choreographer Nicola Conibere shares from her PhD research on spectatorship and applied choreography. She proposes that the act of acknowledging borders reveals something about the world in which we are operating. Asking ‘what are we practicing, exactly, as spectators?’ Nicola speaks about her exploration of non-hierarchical potentials for the relationship between spectators and performers, the freedoms afforded the spectator who is sat in darkness, and, drawing on Rancière, where these relationships are situated socially and politically.

This talk was part of Crossing Borders 2011 and was presented in partnership with London Contemporary Dance School.
