Dancing Aloud A Performance Lecture

10 years 41 collaborators 21 dances 22 countries. What remains of all those dances?

Following a decade of performances around the world Carol Brown wrote to the dancers, architects, designers, composers, filmmakers and visual artists she has collaborated with and invited them to send a memory of their experience.  She moves through their memories, re-drawing a map of choreographies from Philadelphia to Finland, and from Cork to Calcutta, performing the archive and making audible its hidden stories.
