Catalytic Conversation Between Katrina McPherson and Kirstie Simson
Time & Location
About the Event
One of my very last ‘work commitment’s of 2020 was the opportunity to hold one of Dance Base’s on-line Catalytic Conversations. I chose too invite my long-term collaborator and close friend Kirstie Simson to join me for this and we enjoyed both the preparation and having of the conversation. It is currently available to view via the Dance Base website, where you will also find more information about the series.
Kirstie Simson and Katrina McPherson first became friends and worked together through making the dance documentary Force of Nature (2012), which Katrina filmed over 5 years, and which focusses on the philosophical underpinning of Kirstie’s improvised dance practice. In the process, they discovered many shared physical, philosophical and pedagogical perspectives. Now embarking on a new chapter of their creative collaboration, and amidst this most extraordinary of times, Kirstie and Katrina will open up their on-going discussion about what they feel they can offer, as elders, in terms of fresh perspectives and guiding hope, based on their understanding of how we got here, and where we might go.
