WALKER & BROMWICH, Dancing Borders Panel Discussion, 17 September, Berwick-Upon-Tweed
  Dancing Borders Panel Discussion: Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland, 17 Sept, 14:00-16:00

This discussion will celebrate the launch of the latest video work, Dancing Borders, by artists ZoŽ Walker & Neil Bromwich, premiering at the Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival between 15th - 19th Sept. The Dancing Borders Panel Discussion will focus on cross-disciplinary and collaborative practice, looking at ways in which creative practice can respond to the context of site to re-invent histories, and examining the potential for this type of expansive practice to act as a catalyst for social transformation.

Dancing Borders is an ambitious cross-disciplinary project that uses dancing, ceremony and pollination to transform the psychology of place. Taking place in Berwick-upon-Tweed, Dancing Borders marks the start of a collaborative process between artist duo Walker & Bromwich with Mobius Dance Theatre.

Panelists: Neil Mulholland (Director of the Centre for Visual & Cultural Studies Edinburgh College of Art), Laura McLean-Ferris (Writer, Guardian, Art Review London), ZoŽ Walker & Neil Bromwich (Artists, UK), Henna-Riikka Halonen (Artist, Finland).

Event Schedule:
14:00-16.00 Panel Discussion in historic courtroom chambers in the Town Hall, Berwick-Upon-Tweed; refreshments provided.
11.00-17.30 View at your leisure: Dancing Boarders video showing in Coxton Tower; the Bath House by Henna-Riikka Halonen showing at the Prison Cells.
