A symposium hosted by Dance UK in collaboration with Dance Umbrella


Thursday, 23 October 2003, 4.30-6.30 pm
The Voice Box, South Bank Centre, London

• How does dance engage with politics, and how does politics view dance?
• Can dance comment on political issues or influence world events?
• Is there an opposition in dance between aesthetic concerns and social and political debate?
• Do artists have a responsibility to engage with political and social issues, making works of contemporary political resonance and relevance?
• By not engaging with real issues of real concern to real people is dance failing to connect with audiences and missing the opportunity to change how people think?

These questions and more will be tackled in provocative presentations by
Jonzi D, choreographer and pioneer of Hip-Hop Theatre; Deborah Barnard, Company Director, Ludus Dance; Paul Davies, Artistic Director, Volcano Theatre Company; and Frank Doran MP for Aberdeen Central, and member of the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee.

Participants will also have a chance to contribute to the debate – offering their own opinions and asking provoking questions.

The discussion will be chaired by Sue Hoyle, Deputy Director of the Clore Leadership Programme and Lead Advisor on Dance for Arts Council England.

Attendance at the symposium is free. To book your place, call Sian Kendall on 020 7228 4990 or email sian@danceuk.org. Places are limited, so early booking is essential.
