THE IMPOSSIBLE CONSTELLATION: Practice-Led Research Special Event

Lincoln Performing Arts Centre (LPAC), Weds 2 July 2014, 9:00am – 6:00pm

You are warmly invited to The Impossible Constellation, an inter-disciplinary fusion of practice-led research in the arts.

This special event is a cross between a festival and a conference, celebrating practice-led research and launching a series of events linking practice with research in the University of Lincoln’s College of Arts.


An exciting line-up of highly regarded research-practitioners will present their work in a packed schedule of events. The emphasis is on letting the practice speak for itself, though any provocation or interrogation of the dynamics and tensions which exist at the practice/research intersections – from performers, attenders and participants – will be welcome and inevitable.

Confirmed speakers/contributors/performers include:

*   Paul Moore (University of Ulster, Derry): sonic art

*   Owen Parry (Laban): research art

*   Dane Sutherland: auditory culture and performance

*   Annika Erikssonn (Sweden): visual art
