Event description

Description

Join us at the University of Portsmouth for a seminar exploring issues of displacement, adaptation and culture as part of Journeys Festival International 2017.

It is human nature to travel, migrate and move. These movements can be categorised as voluntary or forced, economic or political, desirable or reprehensible. Regardless of how it is categorized, mobility is often an opportunity for learning. Many of us are familiar with the stimulating effect of going to a new place, with different languages and customs to be learned, and opportunities for socializing, work and pleasure to be had.

Taking dance as both a demonstration and a metaphor of the power of human movement, this informal, panel-based seminar will explore how cultural adaptability and creative thinking are strongly related to the long history and present-day realities of journeys, which may be taken for all kinds of reasons. Join this discussion, featuring specially invited leading performers, academics and artists from around the UK.

Chaired by Dr. Marius Kwint

Supported by CRaB (Charles Leddy-Owen) and CCI (Denise Callender)
