‘Transmission – A Performance Symposium’
Venue: The Grove Dance Theatre, Middlesex University
Registration: 10.00am, concluding around 4.30pm
Middlesex University Performing Arts Department warmly invites you to a celebration of dances and dancing.
The symposium has been designed to bring together leading practitioners in a performance-focused context in order to present, argue for and celebrate the increasing number of approaches to staging the work of another. The dance field is familiar with the ‘re-‘ preposition and the variety of contexts this offers – re-staging, recreation, reconstruction, re-envisioning, amongst others. This symposium is an attempt to add a further layer to the wider debate and to offer propositions, as seen through the choreographic works of Martha Graham, Doris Humphrey, Anna Sokolow, Mark Franko and Robert Cohan.
Contributors include: Robert Cohan, Anne Donnelly, Yolande Yorke-Edgell and the Yorke Dance Project; Kim Jones (formerly with the Martha Graham Company) and Lesley Main; Mark Franko and Fabian Barba.
