TEDx event

Creative Minds

Mumford Theatre

Anglia Ruskin University

9.00am – 4.00pm

We will explore the abilities and limits of human creation and innovation. Humans can create inspiring things, such as art, technology and social movements but we are also responsible for creating waste, deadly weapons and war. We will explore the inner workings of our minds and personalities to judge whether we truly are a creative species and how we can each use our abilities to better our world as a whole.

Live notation and
cross-domain
expression

 

HEL 251, Cambridge Campus

5.10 – 6.30pm

The use of movement to generate music notation dynamically, which can then be performed at the time, is less common.  It enables the live reflection and synchronisation of movement in both acoustically performed and electronically generated music and sound. Richard Hoadley will discuss his research and practice in connection to dynamic notation and cross-domain expression, including the use of the Kinect, the Leap and other proprietary interfaces with dancers and other performers.

Sparkles and
Sputum: The Sick
Body of Martin
O’Brien

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HEL 251, Cambridge Campus

5.10 – 6.30pm

Living with the chronic disease cystic fibrosis (CF), Martin O’Brien’s live art practice has focused on exploring his condition through durational performances that actively resist the dominant discourses of medicine, which seek to contain, control and cure such bodies. In staging his personal, embodied specimenhood, away from the clinic and the hospital, and in the performance space instead, O’Brien attempts to reclaim agency over his body and illness. Queering and aestheticising the medical, including through sexual acts and sado-masochistic elements, he performs a ‘pathological resistance to illness’ (O’Brien, 2012: 91). As such, his work will be used to shed light on an increasingly significant aspect of live art practice in the UK – that of its potential to explore the political and ethical dimensions of illness and disability.

Paul Bunyan

Mumford Theatre

7.30pm

Owing more to Oklahoma than Peter Grimes, Britten’s first musical theatre work, the operetta Paul Bunyan, was written during the early years of his self-imposed exile to America in 1941.

In the operetta, the story of the mythical Paul Bunyan is presented as a metaphor for the human struggles of the emerging New World and the personal struggles of the central character Johnny Inkslinger. In this sense, the opera foreshadows many of the themes of Britten’s later works concerned with a search for identity.
