Upcoming events:

My new solo performance installation Loop Atlas, commissioned by Siobhan Davies Dance for group show material/ rearranged/ to/ be travels to the Whitworth in Manchester this month, following performances at Tramway in Glasgow last month. Performances are ongoing throughout the day during gallery opening hours, May 6-14, free entry. We’ll be in Liverpool with this show in July.

My new group work Soft Power Generator, commissioned by Northern School of Contemporary Dance for post-graduate company Verve, premiered in February and continues touring nationally and internationally until June, tour dates here.

Last month, I performed my science-fiction performance-lecture Now That We Know at Nottdance Festival (Nottingham). The work asks: what will change, if and when science discovers precisely how our bodies give rise to our minds? Click here for a photo gallery.

Also at Nottdance Festival, I curated and hosted a series of 3 Nottdance Debates (on Politics, Museums, and What Next?). Videos of these debates will be online soon.

Thanks for visiting and warm wishes,

Matthias
