Mullumbimby’s WeMove dance studio will host a weekend of movement and performance art next month, welcoming artists from across the region and the globe.

The BIMBY Un/Knowledge Weekend from February 7-9 will be a gathering of artists and creatives who work through and with the body.

Among the events will be a performative food experience, a workshop exploring the way me move our attention towards and away from desire, and a Research Bizarre where participants can share wisdom and experience of their own body-focused practices.

‘Whether or not people are dancers or movers their lives are expressed through their bodies and the bodies of knowledge they produce,’ WeMove’s co-owner Meggie Danielson says.

‘Bodies carry narratives, tell stories, enact politics, enforce, open up, and change possibilities for ways of being together.

‘We are making spaces for exchanges between people with different practices, her-stories and backgrounds.’

‘This weekend looks to crack glimpses into the past and urgent future through our physical vehicles and to begin to imagine more and more spaces for exploration of bodied knowledges.’
