What Matters follows on from the highly successful What If… festival which took place in 2010, at the Siobhan Davies Studios.
Co-curated by Cash and Edmunds, together with Claudia Kappenberg, Chirstinn Whyte and Gill Clarke from Independent Dance, the festival sought to encourage an expanded perception of what might be seen as ‘dance’ work.
Returning to the Siobhan Davies Studios for four days in April 2012, Cash and Edmunds will be presenting another thoughtfully curated programme of screenings, performance, debate and discussion located throughout the building, this time under the title of What Matters. This will be a unique opportunity to see a range of experimental work and choreographic enquiry across traditional art-form boundaries from the UK, Europe and further afield.
Sitting somewhere between a choreographed exhibition and an exhibited choreography, the curators delve into what really matters in the context of these artists’ practices.
What Matters is presented by Independent Dance in association with Siobhan Davies Dance and South East Dance. Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Additional support from the International Journal of Screendance. Produced by Artsadmin with straybird.
