Where: Middlesex University London, UK

When: November 1st and 2nd, 2019

Deadline for applications: Booking is now open until Oct 30th 2019

Dance can be seen as a critical way of being in the world. For us dance emphasises the felt over the ‘named’, dispelling binaries and challenging Western constructs of the passive body. Queer theory is a field of critical thinking emerging in the early 1990’s drawing on feminism and queer studies to challenge social constructs and identities. Moving beyond the social constructs of the body both dance and queer theory offer a fluidity for narrating the lived experience; narrations that interrupt dominant stories of identity and how we move through the world. The symposium will look at ways that we might re-imagine, re-educate, re-think, reveal and allow us to re-create a world without the limits of binaries that reflect the somatic experience of Being in the world.

Booking is made via the online store

Costs for participants: £35 full rate / £20 freelance artists/concessions
