The aim of this symposium is to open a dialogue in relation to the power of the human body in space. Certain questions will be raised about how performance can influence the mind in a potent manner and help cultivate awareness and bring about a change of consciousness.

Each artist, will use video clips and images to explain their work and why they have chosen performance over other more conservative forms of creative expression. At the end of the symposium audience members will get the opportunity to participate in a question and answer session.
