Doing day: body / brain / archive

November 19, 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Art history, neuroscience and contemporary dance combine in this experimental workshop designed by dance artists and experts in psychology. The event is inspired by art historian Aby Warburg’s ideas on how we communicate through our bodies, and research in neuroscience on what we reveal and conceal through movement. Attendees will be invited to participate in activities designed by dance artists Siobhan Davies, Helka Kaski and Matthias Sperling in dialogue with Manos Tsakiris, Professor of Neuroscience at the Warburg Institute and his colleagues at the Body & Image in Arts & Science Project, housed at the Warburg Institute.

All levels of dance experience welcome.

This event has a £10 fee
