This In Conversation event, featuring Pawlet Brookes and some of the contributors from Serendipity’s latest publication, My Voice, My Practice: Black Dance, will be an opportunity to listen to the voices of practitioners as they discuss their career history, techniques, pedagogy and performance practice, as they work to dismantle any perceptions of homogeneity when it comes to dance by, from and for the African and African Caribbean Diaspora.
Panellists include Eduardo Vilaro, Makeda Thomas and Thomas Prestø.
