On Falling with Emilyn Claid and Simon Ellis (2012)

Introduced by Frank Bock, Emilyn Claid and Simon Ellis explore the theme of falling through a range of different frames including live performance, movement & arts practices, psychology, politics, philosophy, sociology and aesthetics. Underlying the talk is an understanding of falling as an embodied action that carries physical or emotional risk and the potential for growth and change.  The talk draws on Emilyn’s specific research interests from her perspective as a psychotherapist and choreographer, proposing that the dialogue with Simon might be framed as an act of uncertainty, of falling.

This talk was part of Crossing Borders 2012 and was presented in partnership with London Contemporary Dance School and Dance Umbrella.
