About Re-Imagining Liveness – Dance Transports

We find ourselves in a new reality that relies on working, creating, moving and communicating through a screen. With the oversaturation of online content and overwhelming screen-time, the experience of performance can feel very similar, despite how wide the online offer is.

With this, what happens to liveness as we know it? –  to the work that exists in the non-digital world and to the human relationships that come with it.

Back in September Gracefool Collective brought together a  group of artists and created a space for conversation. Together they discussed, provoked, innovated and created and responded to the question; how do we continue to create, cultivate, curate and experience liveness in these times?

The project consisted of 4 biweekly sessions – 2 of which were facilitated by guest artists/scholars Rebecca Schneider and Zinzi Minott – and 2 hosted by the project’s team.

Please see below the wonderful visual minutes created by Jayda (@Vivrant_Visuals) to capture the events.
