A Place to Dance? Session 4: A Provocation by Gillie Kleiman

Choreographer and dancer Gillie Kleiman offers her thoughts on authorship and ownership of work and the politics of involving the public as creators, performers and commissioners.

“Dancing is work, and it's not. For professional dance people we are definitely working when we perform. When non-professional dancers take the place of dance workers (as performers, collaborators, commissioners and so on), that's not to say that they're working. In this short provocation, I’ll suggest ways in which professional dance with non-professional 'workers' trouble the connections between work and obligation, financial reward, and social status, and between recreation and pleasure, ease and private living. Dance is work, non-work, and something else, in between.” - Gillie Kleiman

Gillie looks at the politics of involving the public as creators, performers and commissioners, inviting discussion with choreographers Jane Mason and Joe Moran, public participant Greg Manderson and chaired by Creative Quarter CEO, Kathy McArdle.

This session is part of A Place To Dance? - a series of provocations happening from 18 - 21 June, about where is a place to dance. Over the course of four days, you will experience dialogue, debate and performance looking at dance placed outside of traditional spaces.
