Professor Roger Kneebone, Brian Lobel and Gianna Bouchard
Tue 26 Nov, 7.30pm - 8.30pm | Free
Blue Room, NDC Wales Dance House
Dissect the intimate relationship between anatomy and performance, spectacle and display with Artist Brian Lobel, Professor of Surgical Education Roger Kneebone and Lecturer in Drama Gianna Bouchard.
Brian Lobel takes a scalpel to the patient experience, looking closely at each vein, muscle, eardrum and retina revealing their most intimate stories. A talk exploring forgotten histories, remembered experiences and revisited embodiment.
Performing Surgery: Roger Kneebone
In this brief provocation, Roger will explore how surgery can be seen as 'performance', and how what happens in the operating theatre resonates with theatre, music and dance. Roger draws on his own experience as a surgeon to investigate unexpected parallels between apparently different worlds.
The Pain of Specimenhood:
This talk will examine the idea of the 'specimen' in relation to Clod Ensemble's 2010 tour of Under Glass. Through this work I will reflect back on wider issues of constructions of specimens in culture, on issues of spectatorship and the ethics of display, and the potential of performance to make us look differently at these moments.
