This is a series of conversations with choreographers, composers, visual artists, hip hop artists, dramaturges, and more. Its overall theme is defined by the body, both in relation to the place it takes in the artist’s practice, and to wider debates in the arts, philosophy, science, medicine, and anthropology. Each dialogue centres on a specific theme, ranging from poetics to politics, mythology to ecology, and intercultural studies to conflict management. The associative chains of thought give insight into the creative process. Author Guy Cools works as a critic, curator, and policymaker for dance, and edited the talk transcripts in cooperation with dance dramaturge Lisa Marie Bowler. Guy Cools
