Speakers: Alex Dodd, James Webb, Yann Marussich

Triggered by Swiss choreographer and performance artist Yann Marussich’s first-person bodily provocation, independent writer and editor Alex Dodd responds with a staged reading of a series of dissociated text fragments and reflections on local instances of public embodiment practice. This is followed by a conversation between Marussich, Dodd, acclaimed South African artist and experimental musician James Webb, and the audience, exploring the motivations behind and responses to his static acts of visceral disturbance. Dodd is a PhD fellow with the Archive and Public Culture research group. Her research focuses on Afro-Victorian embodiment and the ways in which contemporary South African artists are conceptually recycling the 19th century.
