  Across Visceral and Digital Performance


  INTIMACY Across Visceral and Digital Performance is supported by the
AHRC ICT Methods Network, Goldsmiths Graduate School, Goldsmiths Digital
Goldsmiths Drama Department and LABAN.

  INTIMACY is a three-day interdisciplinary programme of events made to
illicit connectivity, induce interaction and provoke debate between
makers, participants and witnesses of works that explicitly address
proximity and hybridity in performance. It will feature workshops,
seminars, performances, posters, and a 1-day symposium.  INTIMACY will
employ digital and live art practices as agents, aiming to further
practical exploration of and vibrant discourse into notions of intimacy
in contemporary performance.  It is framed as a forum for artists,
scholars, community workers, performers, cultural practitioners,
researchers and creative thinkers.

  INTIMACY will provide a platform for the discussion of live
art/performance practices concerned with displaying intuitive, intimate
and visceral relationships between artist and other.  It will explore
performance practices that engage in intimate encounters, raising issues
around bodies of data and flesh; presence as aura and representation;
desire as embodied condition and disembodied fantasy; the human and
posthuman self. Confirmed contributors include: Johannes Birringer, Kira
O'Reilly, Tracey Warr, Janis Jefferies, Amelia Jones, Dominic Johnson,
Kelli Dipple, Paul

  INTIMACY will take place on the 7th, 8th and 9th December in and around
Goldsmiths University of London, LABAN and The Albany (South  London).
