Dance professor to speak at free lecture in Chichester in December
Professor Victoria Hunter is hosting an open lecture at the University of Chichester next month where she will talk about how movement shapes our view of the world.
Professor Hunter’s talk, on Tuesday 6 December, will focus on how we can bring the medium of dance into non-theatre spaces. It is a topic on which she has published various works including her 2015 volume Moving Sites: Investigating Site-Specific Dance Performance which has become a key text for site-specific dance teaching internationally.
The lecture, which is free for all, will be held between 6:00 to 8:00 PM at the University’s Chichester campus, College Lane, PO19 6PE. Tickets can be booked at https://Victoria-Hunter.eventbrite.co.uk.
Prof Hunter said: “This lecture will appeal to anyone with an interest in how dance practice can engage with contemporary issues and themes through its presentation in non-theatre spaces. Everyone is welcome and I hope that it will reshape your views of dance’s relationship to the everyday spaces and sites we engage with in our contemporary lives.”
Dance specialist Victoria has taught at the University since 2013 and celebrates a professorship that crowns a career spanning academic research in site-specific dance practice. Her work has been published in journals such as Literary Geographies, New Theatre Quarterly and Performance Research, alongside high profile practice within the industry.
