Three dance artists take the plunge into the limits of comprehension by proposing a series of performance frames that question 
the action of seeing, doing and knowing.
We are a research based collective of independent dance artists embarking on a long-term project geared towards exploring questions on the nature of experience and it’s relation to knowledge.
Spirals & Horizontal Connections is the first in a series of events that invites researchers from the fields of art, science and philosophy to exchange ideas and be curious together.  Our current topic is embodiment.

Chaired by Kirsty Alexander, Higher Education advisor to Independent Dance and Associate Editor Journal of dance and Somatic Practices.
