You are invited to an open space event to share views and opinions about the impact of legacies of Black British dancers on current dance practices. The day is for artists, scholars and those involved in the dance sector to focus on questions generated by the British dance and the African diaspora project.
This event is the culmination of a research process which gathered material during Roadshows held in Leeds, Liverpool and Birmingham. During these events memories of Black British dancers who were involved with dance from the 1970s onwards were explored. We are investigating the past legacies and contributions to new vocabularies and current artistic practices.
One of our aims is to acknowledge the significance of the contribution of Black British dance artists to dance history and to today’s dance culture. In our exhibition British dance Black routes at the International Slavery Museum, Liverpool we highlight the diversity of dance styles and the rich contribution of the many artists featured in it bringing together a range of thematically organised material on rhythm, community and spirituality.
