See Moving Dialogues, the culmination of Bluecoat’s three year INAHBIT dance programme, on Saturday 6 April from 10.30am – 5pm.
Delivered in partnership with Liverpool Improvisation Collective (LIC), this symposium is designed for artists and educators interested in how dance artists engage their practice within community settings. This one-day event will include a workshop, discussions, presentation, and performance.
LIC artists Jo Blowers, Paula Hampson and Mary Prestidge have a shared ethos and collective practice which has sought new ways of working through artistic experimentation and exploration. The day will be an opportunity to reflect and share their experience of INHABIT, having worked across participation, practice innovation, programme, and audience development to create a wide-reaching programme of new dance.
Joining LIC on the day will be guest speakers from a range of backgrounds, including:
- Sarah Black – Dance artist and lecturer in dance at Liverpool Hope University. PhD, M.A, B.A.
- Julie Hanna – Lecturer from School of Health Sciences at the University of Liverpool whose PhD research focuses on the artist role in health and wellbeing.
- Rachel Rogers – Chair of Homotopia, Liverpool’s long-running LGBTQ+ organisation, Festival Producer for DaDaFest and holds an MA in Cultural Leadership from John Moores University.
- Katrina Shock – INHABIT Project Coordinator
