Interventions in Dance - Camden Art Centre

Interventions in Dance

Camden Arts Centre and The Place invite expressions of interest to attend Interventions in Dance, a two day workshop for visual artists and choreographers led by Rosemary Butcher and focusing on the way dance artists and visual artists work with the body.

It is a chance to investigate the meaning these traditionally distinct disciplines might represent for each other and what their coming together can reveal about the fundamental concerns, frameworks and manifestations particular to each. It will also be an opportunity to address the issues surrounding galleries and live performance.

This is a workshop for visual artists and choreographers with a minimum of three years professional experience. Following the workshop Camden Arts Centre and The Place hope to develop some of the ideas generated.

The workshop is free of charge and by selection.

To register your interest please email Gina Buenfeld, Exhibitions Organiser at Camden Arts Centre, with your CV and a statement of no more than 200 words about why you are interested in the opportunity.

The deadline for expressions of interest is Wednesday 25 June at 5.00pm.

Rosemary Butcher
In nearly four decades Rosemary Butcher has made over 50 works presented in more than 40 countries worldwide and is internationally regarded as one of Europe’s most consistently radical and innovative choreographers. She was profoundly influenced by her time in New York, 1970-72 where she encountered the work of The Judson Group at its height.  She subsequently introduced those ideas to Britain at her 1976 ground breaking concert in London’s Serpentine Gallery.  Since then, Butcher has developed her own movement language and choreographic structure. By her determination to remain an independent artist, her use of cross arts collaboration in Music, Visual Arts, Film and Architecture within the choreographic process and her frequent choice of non-theatrical spaces to present her work, she has forged her own place within the European contemporary dance scene. Butcher’s influence has followed the ideas and concepts of the Visual Arts, particularly in painting and sculpture and has engaged with the developing philosophies within those movements.

'This British artist is an icon of the New Dance movement, radically uncompromisingly and indefatigably expanding the limits of dance' – Suddeutsche Zeitung
