‘Movement and Dance’ | What We Talk About When We Talk About Work

The forthcoming event in the What We Talk About ... series of public discussions will explore movement and dance as both a mode of performance and a method of working curatorially. Beyond a concern withcurating dance practices in a gallery context, invited speakers will consider the “choreography” of exhibitions as a space and time throughout which artworks exhort and direct an audience’s movement.Speakers include Director of The Tetley Bryony Bond, Curator at Extra City Antwerp Michiel Vandevelde and artists Maeve Rendle and Nicola Singh. The public discussion will end with the preview of a new performance piece by Maeve Rendle unfolding throughout the gallery building.

    MKCDC at Bradwell Abbey / Angels at the Abbey

    YOU’RE NOT ALONE

    MKCDC’s latest community project will see us harness the haunting power of the beautiful song - You’re not alone - by Cathal Smyth (also known as Chas Smash from Madness). We hope to unite families and friends in the UK and abroad who have been kept apart by Covid-19, and who are feeling the pinch of isolation in the current financial crisis. We’ll be working with a diverse range of organisations and schools, bringing together voices from across the community in a massed choir. This will culminate in the live-streamed performance of the song within the grounds of Bradwell Abbey at our annual Angels at the Abbey event with a live youth string orchestra.
