The Centre of the Body was delighted to host Theatre Director Jenny Sealey MBE and Live Artist Noemi Lakmaier for our third interdisciplinary dialogue 'Disability and the Artist's Presence', supported by the Wellcome Trust.
Sealey and Lakmaier, each from a very different approach to performance, make significant and imaginative contribution to inclusive presence in live work for audiences today. Sealey co-directed the London 2012 Paralympic Opening Ceremony and continues as Artistic Director of the ground breaking Graeae theatre company to create extraordinary theatre with an uncompromising political and artistic vision. Lakmaier, working with her own presence, makes works that are quietly and ironically challenging, committed and arresting. The event is hosted by Danny Braverman (Theatre and Performance Department).
