Proximity Symposium

Key-note & Panel Discussion | 26 October

A key-note and two panel sessions each punctuated by a different provocation. Cosy up to a group of artists, curators and thinkers as they discuss one-on-one.

KEY NOTE | The fantastic fear of intimacy
Risk, trust, magic and fun. What are the stakes and what are the pay-offs in one-on-one?

SESSION 1 | Why one-on-one?
What is the role of one-on-one for an artist, for an audience and for a presenter? How do you make it, how do you program it and where is its place in the touring circuit?

SESSION 2 | What is intimacy and what is too intimate?
What are the boundaries of intimacy between audience and performer? How is intimacy created and how do we know when we’ve gone too far?
