1) Layard Thompson talking about the solo commissioning project adaptation process
2) Katie Duck talking (about what, precisely, I cannot say because my internet connection is too unsteady to permit me to watch beyond the first minute and a half, but I know it has something to do with posting material on the internet - the interview is on dance-tech.net so it probably has something to do with dance and media/technology)
I just took a short workshop with Katie at Movement Research. It was fantastic and entirely too brief.
Among the things I'm contemplating are:
*nobody gives a shit about you making art, what they care about is you creating the space for art to happen
*it's never your turn ---> this, it seems to me, speaks to the crux of what CAN be interesting in the viewpoints (it's never your turn, or, perhaps put another way, it's always your turn to support what is really happening)
Katie talked quite a bit in the workshop about seeing and hearing. And how the seeing and hearing is great for the first maybe 10 seconds that we enter the stage, but then immediately, we look for a place to go, a thing to do, we carve out the space and essentially cut off our aural and visual fields. Pretty cool stuff.
