Nu Dance Fest 2024: The body as archive

entry: free entry

The body as archive (2016) is a documentary film based on research that considers ways in which the dancer’s body can be regarded as archive.

Dancers create, accumulate and carry knowledge – where is it stored and what do they explore through their practice? Is it possible to locate kinetic knowledge and understand its connection between subjective vision and objective realisation?

The body as archive explores the role of a dancer in the preservation of collective knowledge, its transmission and its accessibility.
