Body Politic is Dance Umbrella’s strand of discussions and debates focusing on key cultural issues affecting dance and performance.
There are different ways of not being allowed to speak. In the discussion we ask artists how issues of censorship, both public and private, are reflected in their art. How does censorship affect the language of the body? Are there things that we cannot say, even when not using language?
Chair: Julia Farrington, Index on Censorship
Panel: Jamila Johnson-Small, DU16 Festival choreographer; Natalia Kaliada, Founding Co-Artistic Director of Belarus Free Theatre and Pelin Başaran, an arts curator and producer from Turkey.
