A chance for programmers and festival directors to explore their experience of programming work which sits outside of the mainstream: an aesthetic challenge to form; an artistic commitment to broaden dance influences; or a political choice to engage with audiences and communities. This T-Talk gives the opportunity for exchange about inclusive cultural projects and presenting different bodies on stage.
