Event description
Join us for the opening night of Bodies of Knowledge in Residence at Attenborough Arts Centre!

About this Event

Bodies of Knowledge is taking up residency at Attenborough Arts Centre, Leicester, presenting work produced as part of the project and utilizing the gallery as a site of production. Join us for a special opening event to explore the work and meet the team behind it. Refreshments and snacks will be provided.

The work displayed presents and draws on images produced during a series of artist-led, interdisciplinary workshops exploring how bodies hold and produce knowledge in different contexts. The artist Tara Fatehi Irani and Kathak dancer Kesha Raithatha worked in collaboration with researchers from Loughborough University's Migrant Memory and the Postcolonial Imagination project to explore the ways in which memory, migration and narrative are coded in dance and movement. Joe Moran worked in collaboration with pro-wrestler Cara Noir and Dr Claire Warden to explore reality and performance in contemporary dance and wrestling, with their workshop resulting in the production of a film by the artist and filmmaker Sam Williams. Raju Rage, meanwhile, worked with trans people to explore embodiment and self-representation as empowerment through the use of still and moving images.
