How Do We Tune Into Sensation?

How Do We Tune Into Sensation?

Festival of Online Work, In Partnership with The Place
Thurs 17th – Sun 21st February 2021 | Full Programme


In this period of global and societal change, collectively we are spending more time than ever apart and online. Given the shift to experiencing the world digitally, how do we stay connected to our senses IRL (in real life)? What have we lost and what have we found in this shift of being? How does this differ from person to person?

Chisenhale Dance Space have partnered with The Place to co-curate a festival of online works, as part of their Spring 2021 season. This programme invites you to reflect on felt, sensate experiences – asking, when distance is a necessity, how can dance and performance remind us of what makes us feel alive?

These works offer a range of different lived experiences of touch, sight, sound, attention and movement, whether situated in the current moment or from our recent history. Including work by CDS Member artists, Alexandrina Hemsley, Janine Harrington, and Susanna Dye.

The festival features audio work, short films, recorded performance, live online performance and a panel discussion: tune in to the works and see the full programme on The Place’s website.

Bakani Pick-Up was selected as a representative of the CDS Membership, to co-curate the festival on a panel alongside Amy Bell (Artist Development Producer, The Place), Jessica Greer (Theatre Programme Producer, The Place), and Es Morgan (Marketing & Programme Coordinator, CDS).

Presented by The Place in partnership with Chisenhale Dance Space.
