Tuesday 14 January (11am-2pm)
Discussing Discussions in/as Performance
Hosted by Trio Collective


Our discussion of Discussion will touch on current trends in integrating conversation into performances, in the form of pre-show talks, post-show Q&A’s, etc. as well as the recent emergence of certain conversational formats such as Choreographic Forum, Dance and Critical Theory Group, Coffee Mornings, Groundswell Meetings, etc. in the field of dance. It will aim to unpack ways that discussion can be a mode of production for researching, working, communicating, promoting, rehearsing, bonding, exchanging, and performing. Must we “do?” Can’t we just “talk?” Discuss.

We can talk about all of these things, none of these things, and more. 

You need not bring anything but yourself. And maybe some cake.
