Online Event

part of Yorkshire Dance's Climate Encounters festival

A zoom presentation by Rosemary Lee and Simon Whitehead exploring their outdoor practice with a case study of their work Calling Tree. (Click here to find out more and book onto the outdoor performance “Calling Tree” which accompanies this talk). 

Rosemary and Simon will each present their practice and talk about what moves them to make work, focusing in particular on how their creative processes invest in relationships with the environments in which the work is located. They will then share the thinking behind their co-authored work Calling Tree. Their presentation will include stills and film excerpts of their work, to be followed by questions and answers and discussion.

Rosemary And Simon will lead 3 walks through nearby parks and public spaces and share their thoughts and responses to different sites and spontaneously imagine an iteration of Calling Tree. Framed as a live, public site visit, along the way they will share readings, memories and somatic exercises that offer participants a direct experience of their artistic process and which invite different senses and readings of a place. For more information about the walks, please see here.
