This is a book about falling as a means of reconfiguring our relationship with living and dying. Dancer, choreographer, educator and therapist Emilyn Claid draws inspiration from her personal and professional experiences to explore alternative approaches to being present in the world.

On dance and performance since 1989 follows the congress of Tanzquartier Wien to which we had invited participants from all over Europe to talk about new geographies and artistic workforms and workspaces in the fields of dance and performance, about the widely interweaved and cross-referencing, often indistinguishable and multiply coded cultural figures of production, reception and reflection.

This story is a product of lockdown, of not being able to create gatherings and experiences with, and for, other people. It is an account of intensely personal histories and experiences, that usually stay behind the screens. It is also a document of the Heteraclub project and the safe space created there, in which hundreds of women shared their stories of love and pleasure.
“Writing the body with the body” consists of fragments taken from performance texts by Stefanie Knobel, which are juxtaposed with a series of pictures created for this volume

In 2014 Project O (Alexandrina Hemsley and Jamila Johnson-Small) began working with Charlotte Cooper and Kay Hyatt on a show called SWAGGA. The work is rooted in dance and draws on other performance traditions, including a live soundtrack by Trash Kit and original compositions by Verity Susman. This collaboration was remarkable because it featured untrained dancers with the kinds of political bodies – fat, queer, older – that are rarely treated as creative, expressive or worthy choreographic subjects. Over two years SWAGGA was refined and performed for audiences around the country. Katarzyna Perlak documented the process and in 2016 created SWAGGA: A Study On Camera, a creative response to the live performance. The result is an extravaganza of mess, antisocial emotions and intersectional feminist sensibility.
SWAGGA: A Study On Camera was first screened by the Live Art Development Agency in 2018 as part of the LADA Screens programme, a series of online screenings of seminal performance documentation, works to camera, short videos, films and archival footage.
