Bodies on the move: on screen and in the street
Workshop organised as part of the Brighton Fringe Festival
May 29th, 4-7pm
Sallis Benney Theatre,
University of Brighton,
Join performance artist Claudia Kappenberg in an investigation into the experience of migration through film and movement. Responding to audio-visual material, we’ll ask how we might embody modes of migration together, developing patterns of movement that take us beyond the Sallis Benney Theatre and into the urban environment.
Migration is often a polarising and paralysing issue. By engaging with it through collective, embodied experiences, and attention to both human and non-human movements, we hope to open up opportunities for more careful considerations and expansive understandings. Ones that apprehend the ways in which migration patterns are limited, constricted and disrupted, but also created and transformed, through technologies, infrastructures, places and knowledges.
The workshop is open to all, no experience in performance or embodied practice required. There will be plenty of options for sharing thoughts and experiences throughout the event.
Bodies on the move is part of the Migration and Refugee Film Festival hosted by the University of Brighton’s Centre for Spatial, Environmental and Cultural Politics.
