The Sporton Professorial Inaugural: The Body & The Intellectual
Wed 26 April 2017, 17:30 – 21:00 BST
Some 30 years ago, choreographer Gregory Sporton and dancer Sandra Norman collaborated on a stylish duet ‘Double Take’, subsequently performed around New Zealand for most of 1986. On the 26th of April 2017, see the original dancers as they are now, in their early fifties, reenact the Double Take choreography alongside footage of their earlier performances for The Sporton Professional Inaugural Lecture.
The performance will take place in the Stockwell building, following a lecture on 'The Body and The Intellectual' from Professor Gregory Sporton.
Please RSVP to confirm your attendance. It is free to attend but we do require you register for catering and security purposes.
Drinks will be provided to accompany the lecture and the performance.
The performance will be filmed in 360⁰ complete with documentary material about their work in the past and subsequent careers. It will go on to be performed at the Wellington Fringe Festival in April 2018, where it had its premiere more than three decades earlier.
Look out for further details in the coming month.
