Matthias Sperling — Now That We Know Tickets

Lilian Baylis StudioLondon

What will change, if and when science discovers how our minds arise from our bodies? Choreographer and performer Matthias Sperling furthers his investigation into the relationship between mind and body in a new performance lecture exploring a hypothetical future in which that connection is clarified.

How will dance and choreography be expanded by this new understanding of the body? And how will our society be altered? This work of science fiction builds on recent findings, taking a choreographic perspective to freely imagine plausible, absurd, thrilling or worrying scenarios.

Sperling took part in Sadler’s Wells Summer University and is a regular collaborator with Siobhan Davies Dance.
