Documentation 2019

InDialogue 2019

InDialogue 2019 invited artists and researchers to apply to participate in the interrogation of dialogue across 3 cities in the Midlands, UK.

Over the course of 3 days in November 2019, the participants activated the cities of Derby (19th November), Lincoln (20th November) and Nottingham (21st November), through papers, workshops, performances, happenings, artist-led labs, live music, eat together, dance, debate, create installations and interventions.

This was the 4th iteration of InDialogue curated by co-directors Dr Heather Connelly and Dr Rhiannon Jones, which brought UK and International based artists and researchers, together to share work, and expand how we think about and use dialogue within creative practice – across the disciplines of art, design and beyond.

The programme concluded with the UK premiere of hancock & kelly‘s An Extraordinary Rendition by InDialogue 2019 Resident Artists, supported by Arts Council England & Dance4. (Further information can be seen by clicking on documentation and residency page)

InDialogue 2019 explored the following strands: Site-Form-Dialogue. Site-Location-Dialogue. Site-Practice-Dialogue.

Sunday Supplement: hancock & Kelly InDialogue  – Dance4 – 24th Nov

This event was organised by Dance4 & InDialogue to provide an opportunity for hancock & kelly and InDialogue founders and curators Heather Connelly and Rhiannon Jones to reflect upon the residency and their contribution to the event. The conversation was open to the public – extending the dialogue beyond the symposium/event, to consider the impact of hancock & kelly’s practice within a wider context. During the conversation h&k were invited to discuss the inception of their performance An Extraordinary Rendition in Chicago, how they worked with the Goat Island Archives, their dialogic process, the development and performance of the work for Nottingham Contemporary.  Reflecting upon their experience of working with ‘in’ Dialogue with each other and participation in InDialogue 2019.
