I have invited the London Ways of Being Together contributors to share this two-week residency. Its part of Artsadmin’s 6 month programme of residencies and when they first offered it, my first thought was to share it.
It will be the 2nd anniversary of our performance that took place in February 2020. Fourteen artists will be leading sessions, some will be open to WoBT contributors and guests and some will be invited into private studio time.
Its a chance to re-connect, repair, replenish and continue a conversation.
Jane Chan, Jasmine Chiu, Laura Lee Greenhalgh, Sumi Xiaoméi Cheng 澄晓楳, Elina Akhmetova, Jay Yule, Loe D’Arcy, Dawn Collins, Iris Chan, Jia-Yu Corti, Kuan-Yu Chen, Linzy Na Nakorn, Hazel Lam, Sophie Nuzel and myself, Jo Fong will be leading, facilitating and holding space for new investigation. People have delved and come forward with proposals that I feel reflect the time. Power, presence, provocations, protest, grief, motherhood, masculinity, menstruation, faith and grace.
To the side is learning, exchange, coming out, co-creating, co-producing a shift in how things can come into being.
There will be us, our guests and dancing.
Supported by Artsadmin at Toynbee Hall, KindredPacket, Neurolive, Dance Art Foundation, Wales Millennium Centre and Independent Dance.
