Entanglements is a hybrid event, weaving together fragments of text, film, movement and conversation, from Karen Christopher (performance maker), David Overend (writer/academic) and Laura Bissell (writer/academic). There will also be time for audience discussion.

Entanglements is an events series taking places across the UK, experimenting with form and offering insight into artistic processes and new collaborations. Each event involves local artists and audiences, whose own art and ideas will be entangled with the work of the presenters. Entanglements combines existing artworks and publications with open dialogue and creative responses, creating something new in the moment of presentation and opening a space for reflection on art, ecology and collaboration.

Entanglements has been designed around the presentation of two recently published books: Entanglements of Two: A Series of Duets (Intellect), edited by Mary Paterson and Karen Christopher, and Performance in the Field: Interdisciplinary practice-as-research (Palgrave Macmillan), by David Overend.

Making Routes is a network convened by Laura Bissell and David Overend for researchers and practitioners who are on the move: using journeys in creative or challenging ways; forging new paths through troubled places; or travelling experimentally with art and ideas.
