How do we look at each other? How do we allow ourselves to be seen? How do our movements and physicalities shape how we perceive the world around us? How much can we affect the way we see others? Can we learn to see – across lines of difference – in new ways?
Choreographers Jess Curtis and Claire Cunningham will lead a 2 day workshop researching themes and ideas related to their work The Way You Look (at me) Tonight investigating movement, our perceptions of each other and of our environment. Taking inspiration from the work of their collaborator Dr Alva Noë, whose philosophy suggests that perception is an activity happening in our whole bodies and not just our brains – we will investigate, through movement, language, writing, watching, listening and feeling, how difference – of physicality or lived experience- and diversity can both inform and shape our perception.
