Who decides what an audience sees? How does a dancer choose who to work with? How do we encounter things beyond what we 'like'? How do we reach diversity and sustainability in the dance field?
‘Nora Talks’ is a series of talks in which the three dancers of Nora share the fruits of a period of international research. Alongside a guest speaker, the trio will expose the often hidden process of the curator. Nora will present a short, reflective offering before inviting those present to join the conversation, making dialogue an integral part of their research.
Nora is researching creative processes, alternative dance ‘company’ models and the agency and responsibility that come with commissioning, curating and casting work. The motivation for this research, which involves attending performance festivals and meeting artists, programmers and audiences, is to find new collaborators.
