Based in Zurich and Berlin, Simone Aughterlony is an independent artist working predominantly in dance and performance. For over a decade she has been making choreographic works in collaboration with friends, visual artists, musicians, academics and dancers.
Most recently, Simone has been exploring alternative forms of kinship, seeking a culture of togetherness and a reappraisal of what is meant by ‘family’. This Weekender Lab draws on this enquiry and uses specific materials developed with Jen Rosenblit during the making of their performance Everything Fits In The Room.
Participants are invited to engage with materials, bodies and architectures through a series of improvisation sessions and discussions that pay attention to the states of being, becoming and decaying, and playing with the central question: ‘What is it to be in a place of meaning?’
This lab is open to all artists with an interest in choreographic thought and practice. No dance training is required.
This Weekender Lab is presented by Artsadmin in partnership with Fierce Festival, Birmingham, where Simone's piece Everything Fits In The Room will be presented on 20 & 21 October.
