Matters Arising: Who are 'we'?

How does dance and choreography function as a site for solidarity among artists and audiences in a time of polarisation and dissolution? How do these practices account for and address the structural and political conditions that they are part of? Might the sustainability and relevance of this art form require recognition of divisions and distinctions among artists and audiences? This first event on a new platform for discussion will use a 'Long Table' format to debate these questions.

The Long Table was conceived by Lois Weaver. For more information visit

Matters Arising is a discussion platform addressing pressing topics in the practices of contemporary dance, choreography and performance convened by Siobhan Davies Dance and Independent Dance.

Listen to the audio recording of the event.
