Interactions launches today! An artist development project led by a group of 5 experienced artists who make socially-engaged performance work and are based across the North West and in Yorkshire. To get involved in the programme, follow this blog (which provides a platform for reportage and debate on socially-engaged performance practice) and come to the two public Mini-symposiums on themes and issues currently arising from this key area of contemporary practice. These discursive and practice-focussed events will be held at:

  • Yorkshire Dance, Leeds—Interactions Mini-Symposium #2  Weds 8.10.14    6.30—8.30pm

 Hazard Dani, Gisele and Sarah will be at Hazard on Saturday (12.7.14) investigating responses and reactions to the programme of work being seen in Manchester city centre. Hazard is ‘the biennial micro-festival of incidental intervention and sited performance, which blurs the boundaries between art and activism…’ Kris Canavan Hazard - 600 Image credit: Kris Canavan and Word of Warning
