A series of short videos directed by Jemima Yong.
Using performance material from Always Already by Karen Christopher and Tara Fatehi Irani, reconfigured for the camera, these videos are meditations on selected moments from the project, and are designed to be viewed individually or as a collection. Always Already premiered via live stream on 3 June 2021, presented by Dance4 and Birmingham International Dance Festival.
The video series will be available to view on our website after the launch event.
2. Entanglements of Two: A Series of Duets
Drawing out the particularities of working in twos, with a focus on collaborative performance making, this book considers the duet as a particular configuration in which to think, the duo a microcosm of humankind, and presents everyday entanglement of form and practice seen through the lens of the smallest multiple unit. Edited by Karen Christopher & Mary Paterson. Published by Intellect Books.
Entanglements of Two is available online from Unbound and Intellect Books.
