Memory ^ sentiment ^ body ^ space ^object – Dialogues across and between dance and art is an interdisciplinary symposium that emerged from Body Space Object Roundtables at the School of Art and Design at Coventry University. It aims to consider how performative and material practices have articulated the embodied nature of memory and sentiment in relation to objects and space. Where is the common ground between dance and visual art? Does this common ground create a radical space for new thinking, making, performing and writing? How can the different ideas and practices of dance and art add richness to an understanding of memory, sentiment, body, space and object?
Contributions are invited that respond to these questions and address but are not limited to the following themes:
- Hand and digital
- Materials and making
- Memory and loss
- Displaced meaning
- The body and autobiography
- Moving image and the haptic
- Dyspraxia and disorientation
- Virtual and augmented spaces
- The intersection of mind and body in acts of dwelling
- Permeability and porosity in arts practice
Guest speakers will be confirmed closer to the event and will be drawn from international practitioners and researchers in the field.
