Disordering Dance: A Dyspraxic Aesthetic in Dance Practice (Performance Lecture at Dance International Glasgow)

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk

Aby Watson (Speaker), 23 Oct 2019

Disordering Dance: A Dyspraxic Aesthetic in Dance Practice is a performative lecture by neurodivergent artist-researcher Aby Watson. Aby will talk about her doctoral practice-research and the development of her new work BRUT [working title], which seeks to explore and unpack a problematic phenomenon that surrounds dance work by dyspraxic bodies: when impairment, difference and lived experience are invisible, how does an audience understand our dancing bodies? Without inherent context, are we seen as just a bit shit? Do we come across as amateurs? Aby will talk about creating dance that challenges the neurotypical-normative gaze, and will display her experiments in choreographing work with a distinctly dyspraxic aesthetic.
