As part of a retrospective of Jonzi D’s earliest pieces and a programme of newly commissioned work in the Lilian Baylis Studio in October, this talk will be led by the importance of urban movement. Looking at attitudes towards the body and how it interacts with other forms of contemporary dance and art, Jonzi will be joined by musician and frequent collaborator Soweto Kinch.

Back for a fourth series, the body:language talks are curated by dramaturg and writer Guy Cools. As in previous years, British and international artists will be interviewed about the role of the body in their work and how their understanding of it relates to other fields. Each discussion will focus not just on the body in dance and live performance but will also encompass how other disciplines relate to the human form, including philosophy, science, medicine, anthropology and other arts.

This series will also feature Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Hofesh Shechter and Sue Buckmaster.
