In a time of shifting geopolitical forces, in a world increasingly globalised and interconnected, how can we find new understandings that help us to glimpse the realities of today and tomorrow? What can artists and academics from today's cosmopolitan cities and transnational cultures say to each other and to audiences?
The ArtsCross project has explored these questions and more in Beijing (2009, 2012) and Taipei (2011), and now for the first time ArtsCross will be presented in London presenting 9 performance pieces in one evening.
Online from 19th July watch the creative process unfold, observe the choreographers, performers and academics as the work and dialogue develop, post your views and see the resulting performance on 10th August. Then stay for the post-show discussion with the choreographers and attend the conference on 11th August.
