Patricia Wood’s Transmission Solo: tools for telepathy and conjuring sensation, an experimental dance performance that incorporates radio transmission as a source of poetics, transmitting movement across time, space and social memory.

Carla Zimbler (with collaborator Mikaela Stafford) is curating – PACT Salon: SLURP! is an exploration of sensory response and nostalgia, engaging with the five senses to fully engage and immerse the body in a liminal space. It encourages self-discovery, asking the audience to peer inwards, meditate on sensations of touch, taste, sight, smell and sound as they weave between A/V chambers that inspire dialogue and emotional connectedness. SLURP! is both a study of sensory processing and an environment that provides sanctum from external noise and visual disturbance.

Pepa Ubera is a freelance dance artist based in London who’s project Charco is a call for care in order to deal with the anthropogenic changes that WE, humans have caused on Earth. Pepa has been searching and designing choreographies that challenge places of stagnation in society (charcos) and the behaviours that stop us from thinking of life as a space of wonder and experimentation. Socio-political choreographic practices have the potential to empower people by asking them to trust their caring and intellectual capacities. This research embraces choreography as the capacity to read the body of society in an anthropological way, to recognise what is currently at stake, to see which problems need attention and how social constraints are supported by the body..
