I will be performing my science-fiction performance-lecture Now That We Know at
Nottdance Festival (Nottingham) on March 8. 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 will be curating and hosting a series of 3 Nottdance Debates (on Politics, Museums, and What Next?) for which you are invited to send in questions.
Thanks for visiting and warm wishes,
