A ResCen/Middlesex University seminar

In this seminar Shobana focused on the discursive and corporeal research behind some of her recent dance works. Choreographic works such as Translocations (2013), In Flagrante (2013) and Strange Blooms (2013) were shown in video segments and discussed in terms of the impact that collaborations with scientists had on the choreographic process. In a second part of the seminar, Bayadere – the Ninth Life, a Royal Opera House commission to be premiered in March 2015, was discussed in reference to more discursive research on the role of the female in orientalism and a choreographic response to definitions of culture and gender.

   
   

The seminar was introduced by Ola Johansson, Associate Professor of Contemporary Performance Practice at ResCen/Middlesex University.
