Open Dialogue #3: Other Inheritances
Adrian Heathfield, Ramsay Burt and Meg Stuart
What is dancers’ and dance artists’ experience of rethinking their practice as they grow older and have more experience but a different sort of energy and flexibility? In what ways can choreography challenge socially constructed ideas about ageing? Other inheritances is a conversation about what dance can be, beyond mere physical virtuosity. The writer and performance scholar Adrian Heathfield, dance historian Ramsay Burt and choreographer Meg Stuart share their different artistic and cultural perspectives on the theme of dance and age.
Followed by a screening of Spirit Labour
