For this in conversation event, queer crip dancer Kat Hawkins and curator Iarlaith Ni Fheorias invite you into a discussion surrounding Hawkin’s new performance work Object Permanence, which takes us intimately into the relationship between the disabled body and assistive devices, revealing a world of joy, companionship and sensuality.

To begin the session, Kat will share still, video and sound documentation of Object Permanence before then opening up the discussion to those present. This session has been organised by A/WA member Iarlaith Ni Fheorais.

This session is free to attend and will be held on Zoom. Please register by emailing info (at) artworkassociation.org. Registered attendees will receive the link 10 minutes in advance of the discussion.

Kat Hawkins is queer crip director, dance artist and PhD researcher looking at the role of an understudy in inclusive dance, and non-normative bodies in contemporary dance settings. They create work focused on access, bodies, transcending bodies, time, and the spaces in between.

Iarlaith Ni Fheorais is a curator and writer based between the UK and Ireland.
