Where does emotion reside? How do we share it? To whom does it belong?  Programmed by the recently formed Body and Being Network, the event Embodying Emotion offers a chance to explore these fascinating questions this coming 3rd June.  Performing an original piece based on Ovid’s tale of Myrrha (developed as part of Avid for Ovid), choreographer and dance artist Marie-Louise Crawley and composer Malcolm Atkins will explore the embodied expression of emotion.  The performance will be followed by facilitated audience discussion.

Date:  Wednesday 3rd June 5.30-6.30pm

Venue:  Jacqueline du Pré Building, St Hilda’s College, Oxford
Attendance is free, but please register for this event on the Body and Being Network website by 1 June: http://bodyandbeingnetwork.org/2015/05/20/event-announcement-embodying-emotion/

The Body and Being Network is a new research initiative that aims to develop innovative interdisciplinary dialogues about the body. Co-founded by Karin Eli (University of Oxford) and Anna Lavis (University of Birmingham), the network instigates and supports collaborative encounters between scholars and performing artists, and challenges participants to develop analyses that involve their own embodied experiences.
