Lisa, Rachel and Sally reflect upon their experiences of the research project Body of Knowledge, delving into and sharing their archives and responding to their recent residencies at the Silk Mill.
Sunday Supplements are a great opportunity for you to be involved in the artists’ creative process and find out more about how artists make work.
All Sunday Supplements are FREE, with breakfast available to buy.
Those attending this particular Sunday Supplement will gain free entry to the castle on Sunday 12 March, booking is essential as places are limited.
Body of Knowledge is a research project that explores the body as a living archive and how it might be treated as such through collection, articulation and dissemination, so challenging traditional archival methods reliant upon artefacts and documents.
In partnership with Derby Museums, the first research phase has included residency time at Dance4’s international Centre for Choreography, discussions with the Silk Mill curators and archivists and presenting initial research as part of the international symposium InDialogue, Nottingham. The Artists explore the body as a means of making: past, present and future, drawing from the Silk Mill and its collections of Making and Social History.
Produced and commissioned by Dance4.
