Rethinking the development of performances: Cally Spooner’s Corpus creation

Since 2012 Corpus functions as a collaborative network for commissioning and presenting new performance work in a visual art context. The aim of the six core partners is to establish a new kind of structure that might improve the conditions for commissioning performance, to stimulate its production and development, and to generate strength in the emergent global conversation about “performance”.

Cally Spooner, with a Corpus production that she developed across Redcat in Los Angeles, Bulegoa z/b in Bilbao and Playground, will zoom in on her new project and company that rethinks the notion of performance. Her lecture is followed by a panel with Corpus partners and a Q&A.

Corpus is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union and consists of Bulegoa z/b in Bilbao, Contemporary Art Centre Vilnius, If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution in Amsterdam, KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, Playground festival (STUK Kunstencentrum & M-Museum) in Leuven, Tate Modern in London, as well as several associate partners.
