Where From Here Symposium Line Up

Where From Here: 21 Years of Third Angel
A one day Symposium hosted by Leeds Beckett University and Compass Live Art
Headingley Campus, Leeds
Thursday 17 November, 10am - 6.30pm (followed by drinks)
FREE - but advanced book advised: click here.

We are delighted to announce the line up for Where From Here, our 21st anniversary symposium.
The day's papers will reflect on the past, present and future of Third Angel, and explore the territory of work we have inhabited and influenced over the years, from making live art, durational performances and video art through to our theatre making practice and collaborations with other artists. It's also a chance celebrate Third Angel's longevity and place this into context in the current political, economic and artistic climate.
The programme for the day includes performances, short films, presentations and papers; it will be of interest to performance academics, teachers and students, plus audience members interested in finding out more about the work. We're thinking of it as something in between a symposium and a one-day festival. So we are very pleased that with the support of Leeds Beckett University's School of Film, Music and Performing Arts, the Symposium is free to attend.
The final line up is still being confirmed, but we are very pleased that Where From Here will feature contributions, presentations and performances from artists and academics including:
  • Aletia M Badenhorst
  • Oliver Bray
  • Gillian Dyson 
  • Lucy Ellinson 
  • Christopher Hall
  • Caroline Horton & Dr Jacqueline Taylor
  • Andrew Jeffrey

  • Dr Hannah Nicklin
  • Michael Pinchbeck & Linford Butler

The full schedule will be announced later in October. 
Where From Here: 21 Years of Third Angel is convened by Oliver Bray, Alexander Kelly, Michael Pinchbeck and Hannah Nicklin. Compass Festival of Live Art runs 11-20 November 2016.
