Simon Ellis Seminar at C-Dare

‘Recovery: Jealousy and Transmission’

7 May5-6.15pm

Free event


Guest Speaker Simon Ellis will host a seminar and discussion about a performance project called Recovery that Ellis directed but has never seen performed. He will discuss the effect of its transmission from ‘performance’ to ‘data’, and to adopt a sceptical attitude to the seductive power of the archive. Ellis is an independent choreographer, dancer and film-maker, and Reader in Dance at the University of Roehampton. His work is often about intimacy and/or power, and in particular he is interested in how collaborations make things difficult.
