A Conversation Place #15

Leo Burtin and Dinis Machado
Dance4's Emma hosts another in the series of A Conversation Places involving artists that integrated food (specifically soup) in different ways within or around their practices.

This is a conversation between artist Leo Burtin and choreographer Dinis Machado.
Leo describes his work in relation to the delicate dialogue to be had about suicide, and the bridge that can be formed when eating together; his latest work is titled The Midnight Soup. The pair agree that eating and talking has a similar feel to walking and talking; the act of undertaking a natural exercise together in a pair or group soon becoming a vehicle for productive, weighty conversation. Dinis Machado was in Nottingham's ncn Lace Market Gallery, continuously developing his movement installation Practicing Paradigm, until 10 December 2015, details here.
