About this Event

This event is part of You Can Probably Turn this into Something; an exhibition that presents a web of studio material, objects, instructions to participate, and performance documents from the last 10 years of Dog Kennel Hill Project’s work together. Within a landscape of objects and video, audio and text documents, audiences trace evolving worlds that have been inhabited through the artists’ research investigations, to uncover the creative process and see how the choices they have made in response to these have allowed them to develop their work. This talk is part of a series of discussions focusing on particular aspects of the artists’ working practice .

Performer/artists from collective Dog Kennel Hill Project will navigate readings and conversations with Kélina Gotman. This event will draw from meeting points in Gotman’s research into theatre and making, and Dog Kennel Hill Project’s practices of emotional shape-shifting and the moulding of imagined stories into bodily realities. Together they will situate performed activities within questions that span critical studies of science and medicine, history, philosophy, and cultural theory.

Kélina Gotman is Reader in Theatre and Performance Studies in the English Department at King's College London, and author of Choreomania: Dance and Disorder (Oxford Studies in Dance Theory, Oxford University Press, 2018, winner of the David Bradby Award) and Essays on Theatre and Change: Towards a Poetics Of (Routledge, 2018). She is co-editor with Tony Fisher of Foucault's Theatres (Manchester University Press, forthcoming Fall 2019) and editor of Theories of Performance: Critical and Primary Sources, 4 vols., forthcoming with Bloomsbury 2021. She has contributed articles and chapters on dance, theatre, translation, language, the history and theory of disciplines and institutions, critical and cultural theory, writing and critical practice. She is translator of Félix Guattari's The Anti-Oedipus Papers (Semiotext(e), 2006) and Marie NDiaye's The Snakes (Cue Press, 2016). She has collaborated widely on theatre, dance and new opera productions in Europe and North America as a dramaturg, translator, director, actor, dancer, choreographer, writer, librettist, designer and curator.
