Christopher Matthews In Conversation with Arabella Stanger and Shannon Stewart

what’s class/ desire/ my body/ your body got to do, got to do with it?

This event is part of the installation Untitled Video Portraits 

As part of his residency at The Marlborough Pub and Theatre for Brighton Digital Festival, Christopher Matthews (South East Dance & Brighton Digital Festival artist 2019) will be in discussion with artist Shannon Stewart and dance historian Arabella Stanger. Together they will explore the links between Matthews’ and Stewart’s work in relation to class structure, gender, sexuality, desire and body image. Questions asked by the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange will guide the direction of the conversation through the following provocations:

Who gets to dance?
Where is the dance happening?
What is it about?
Why does it matter?*

Before and after the discussion there will be opportunities to explore Matthew’s interactive digital dance work Walk 4 Me, which uses Janet Jackson’s concert stage walks to explore a tension between the pedestrian and the icon.
Tickets available here

Monday 21 October, 7.30pm at The Marlborough Theatre. Tickets £3 available here

There will also be an opportunity to Meet the Maker in an informal event in the bar at The Marlborough Pub from 5pm - 7pm. All are welcome to drop in.

Presented at The Marlborough Theatre by South East Dance, New Queers on the Block and Brighton Digital Festival 2019. Supported by Arts Council England.
