CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS?
I watched th DV8 production CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS? live in Berlin. Seeing it again now with the choreographer’s commentary, I only seem to realize how close it is to what propels my own work in terms of freedom of speech and what infringes on that right. Not to even speak of the breathtaking choreographies that render me speechless.
Spring Dance 2011 hosted the world premiere of DV8’s newest work Can We Talk About This? The performance deals with freedom of speech, censorship and Islam using real life interviews and archive footage to examine influences on multicultural policies, press freedom and artistic censorship. Australian Lloyd Newson conceived and directed the work and founded DV8 in 1986.
