*This pop up collection will be open from Thursday – Saturday between 12PM and 5PM.
The Nottdance Reading Room is a pop-up collection that will be available for 3 days during the festival bringing together a range of publications by artists and a selection of readings around relevant themes.
A rare chance to encounter a temporary gathering of some of the many excellent self-produced publications being created by different artists in the dance field today – in the form of original zines, books, scores, documentation and more. We’re delighted to say Hamish MacPherson will be bringing a collection of artists’ zines he has gathered from Chisenhale Dance Space in London, alongside his own zine Still.
The Nottdance Reading Room will also host a selection of books and articles that open up thinking and discussion around important subjects and questions. These will include a selection of readings on climate activism and artistic practice, contributed by Rita Marcalo (aka Instant Dissidence), and a selection of readings on anti-racist practices in dance, contributed by the collaborative research project, Contemporary Dance and Whiteness.
This space is for you to browse, have a chat, open up a new conversation but also an opportunity to take home one of the original artists’ publications that will be for sale.
Join us on Thursday 10 October for Reading Room Hang-out. An event that shines a light on The Nottdance Reading Room in an informal chance to hang out and discuss with some of the creators of the publications and reading lists.
Suitable for all.
