Bodies Beyond Borders is an event series that explores performance as a practice that can disrupt structures of oppression, re-think hierarchies, illuminate the slippery boundaries between bodies and offer a space for critical empathy. It is the first project from curating duo osborn&møller (UK/DK) and responds to the very particular moment in summer 2016 when the collaboration formed and the border between the UK and mainland Europe began to be re-drawn. The project looks at the way performance might rattle and unsettle physical, geographical and conceptual borders: borders between bodies, identities, art forms, places, and experiences, and our attempt to define these as human.

With this first edition of Bodies Beyond Borders we are looking at Territory: a word assigned to the notion of a field, domain, province or sphere of action or thought, originating from the latin word terrere “to frighten” and territorium, meaning “a place from which people are warned off”. Through this lens, we present the work of six international artists whose work responds to the fear and isolation currently shifting geopolitical frameworks. This two-day programme of performance, screenings and conversation will look at at the fictions behind fear tactics and question the powers that keep them in place.

We look forward to welcoming you and sharing a space for new artistic encounters, conversation and thought.
