What Now Festival (2013): Skype Conversations

The What Festivals ran from 2009-2016 with each guest-curated around a different theme. For the 2013 edition, Frank Bock curated with assistant curator Luke Pell around the theme Dancing in Context. In addition to studio-based activities, they included six Skype conversations between artists based in the UK and abroad. At a time when video calls still felt new to many, each conversation played between movement and speaking, using image, object and bodies to communicate. Here, we include the 2013 e-flyer and curatorial statements from Frank Bock and Independent Dance as added context for the conversation series.
