I took the team’s work to the Fragile? dance symposium 20-21 April in Tallinn, Estonia. Initiated by Kjersti Engebrigtsen, the symposium was curated by Isabel Jones of Salamanda Tandem, and featured three new pieces of choreography developed with sight impaired dancers, speakers, workshops and exhibits. The site specific piece, Ad Astra by Salamanda Tandem at the end of the event, was successfully inclusive not only in terms of the sight impaired dancers and audience, but in making movement available to the non-dancers among us. I took the costumes we made for Ingrid Kristensen, and Anders’ images of the Sensing Dance project. These were printed up on canvas and hung from the ceiling, with the costumes hung from hooks and arranged in a cloakroom. Responses were visceral and immediate, with many associations.
