Dancing Museums: Seventh Residency in London
7–13 Nov 2016

The National Gallery

Dancing Museums is an EU partnership project bringing together five European dance organisations and eight internationally renowned museums to explore with dance new ways of interacting with audiences.

For the seventh Dancing Museums residency UK dance artist Lucy Suggate is joined by collaborating EU dance artists, curators, education professionals and scientists including cognitive neuroscientist Guido Orgs, social psychologist Daniel Richardson and art historian Marco Peri. During the week they explore how the presence of dancers can offer new ways of experiencing art in the museum and interrupt codes of gallery behaviour.
