BELLYFLOP Magazine is pleased to present Cue Positions, a two-day event that (BELLY)flips the usual organisation of a symposium. Instead of presentations that precede shorter discussions, Cue Positions will be a series of long-form conversations in unusual modes that are punctuated, interrupted or embellished with carefully-chosen, short interventions selected from offers gathered through an open call.

These offers responded to a provocation that describes our interest in how we, and anyone else, might take a stand, speak from a position, share an opinion. We’re interested in how we might enable ourselves and each other to speak from where we are and where we want to be and where we know we’re not.

Each conversation will happen under specific environments, each of which will serve to shape the nature of our thinking and acting. These are designed and will be guided by BELLYFLOP.

There will be interventions from artists Louise Ahl, Alexandra Baybutt, David Bloom, Eliisa Erävalo, Antje Hildebrandt, Justin Hunt, Hamish MacPherson, Harriet Plewis, Robbie Synge, Else Tunemyr, Mil Vukovic and Asher O’Gorman & Tara Silverthorn.

Day 1: Friday 22 November 2013 – Artsadmin’s Toynbee Studios

Session 1: 10am-1pm – PAPER
This session will feature offerings from David Bloom, Mil Vukovic and Hamish MacPherson, while we communicate through a scored paper-based conversation, using writing, drawing and mark-making.

Session 2: 2.30pm-5.30pm – DARKNESS
Harriet Plewis, Justin Hunt and Louise Ahl will give their presentations while we converse under the cover of darkness.

Day 2: Saturday 23 November 2013 – Chisenhale Dance Space

Session 3: 2pm-5pm – SLOW DANCE
As we pass through a series of duo, solo and group slow dances, Antje Hildebrant, Alexandra Baybutt and Else Tunemyr will share their interventions.

Over a simple but delicious dinner, Eliisa Erävalo, Robbie Synge and Asher O’Gorman & Tara Silverthorn will offer the final interventions of the symposium.
