A demonstration of live work Manual (2013), choreographed by Siobhan Davies with dance artist Helka Kaski, is followed by a discussion with neurophysiologist Jonathan Cole about the extraordinary complexity of our everyday actions, inviting comparison to the power of visual artists to interrupt our habitual behaviour.
Manual draws attention to simple movements, meticulously dismantling their timing and order to encourage us to notice how we orchestrate actions.
This event is curated by Artangel. Artangel commissions and produces exceptional projects by outstanding contemporary artists. Their latest project Plot, by Brazilian artist José Damasceno, is a series of sculptural interventions throughout Holborn Library.
