Very excited to be tavelling to Copenhagen in the morning to appear – on behalf of Goldin+Senneby – at a conference on the ‘Lecture Performance’ as much used by contemporary artists. I’ll be discussing this and other aspects of my collaboration with Goldin+Senneby (and others) with Ceciilie Ullerup Schmidt, a Danish dancer and performer based in Berlin. I’ve been reading Cecilie’s recent publications in preparation and am looking forward in particular to finding out more about her amazing performance ‘Schützen’ (Shoot) which uses sound, performance and audience participation to deconstruct a single gunshot and, in doing so, investigates the nature and meaning of violence, embodiment and militarism.
This weekend’s conference is at the Overgaden Institute. Full programme here:
