No-How Generator embarks from the question: If knowledge-generation is a fundamentally embodied process, can we see and experience it happening in a dance performance?
Performed with Katye Coe and joined by a different guest performer each time, Matthias Sperling’s new work invites you to experience a ritual-like performance that connects perspectives from embodied cognitive science with shamanism and hypnosis. With both seriousness and gently subversive humour, the work reflects on a dance performance’s potential to serve as a collective experience where particular forms of knowing are conjured into being – for performers and audience members alike.
Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, Midlands4Cities, Dance4 and Siobhan Davies Dance.
