Ready to move, express yourself through your body, share your experiences of 2017?
Moving Moments is part of the event series ‘The Conversation Continues,’ which derives from the research project ‘Gendering Cities of Culture’ situated within the GRACE Project.
Dance artist Tamar Draper invites twenty community dancers for a reflection about their experiences of Hull’s developments in 2017. Through playful movements, we explore questions such as
- What have we learned in 2017?
- What has challenged us to comprehend?
- Which memories will last?
In two workshop sessions, dance movements are collectively explored and developed. Our explorations are finally performed in five locations over the course of two days. Film-maker and artist Andrew Quinn documents these performances audio visually.
Moving Moments aims to create a ten-minute long film. Five sequences of two minutes structure the critical reflection on Hull’s celebration of UK City of Culture in 2017. The material used for this video production is compiled out of contrasting audio and visual footage. The audio footage arises from the yearlong collaboration with ten citizens (observing participants) in support of the research project ‘Gendering Cities of Culture’. The visual footage is collected through the community dance project ‘Moving Moments.’
The event series ‘The Conversation continues’ serves as a creative translations of the research project ‘Gendering Cities of Culture. Through three interventions, the event series creates spaces for further discussion, critical reflection and creative expression about cultures of gender equality.
