Nature is powerful. We play at escaping to it, long to return to it, wish to conquer it, say we’ll protect it, and risk destroying it. But what is it? 
Join philosophers, analysts and artists to debate these questions.

The Place presents Dance No 2° by Sivan RubinsteinDance No 2° is a timeless dance, using ancient images of evolution and prophetic visions of the future to explore cycles of changing climates. It examines how human existence is influenced  by the land and elements we live with. All the senses are mobilised as we explore how to become a part of the natural world and where our place is within a fragile ecosystem.
Transported by a cinematic soundtrack, earth-toned costumes and a minimalist set, audiences  journey from the desert to the sea to scenes of protest, understanding how the land we live on and the planet we inhabit shapes us, how our body can be a planet, and the planet our home.
7:30-8:30pm GMTThe Place
Sound PicturesJoin keynotes Professor Mitch Green (UCONN), Professor Derek Matravers (OU/Cambridge) and Dr Jenny Judge (NYU) to discuss the relation that holds between the senses (e.g. sound and image) and how this may illuminate relations holding between sense and emotion (e.g. music and melancholy).

The conference will be a mix of pre-watch, pre-read and pre-listen papers, performances and expert interviews and a live event hosted through Zoom.

Registration details to follow shortly.
