This is the research blog of dancers Eleanor Sikorski, Flora Wellesley Wesley and Stephanie McMann. As the artistic directors of Nora they curate and perform together, inviting choreographers to make work for them to perform.

As of October 2016, Nora have been undertaking a period of international research into creative processes, alternative dance ‘company’ models and the agency and responsibility that comes with curating and collaborating. They will be publishing videos, interviews, text and images. This research will culminate in a series of Nora Talks and a new series of artist commissions in 2017/18.

For information about all of Nora's work and performance dates visit www.noramoves.com

Fuck Genius

Fuck Genius

We all need to stop using the word genius. Really.

It might be acceptable in the following situation:

"I've got it! Why don't we wrap the bacon around the sausages" 

"Woah! Genius idea, dude."

But other than that, it needs to leave the room.

Privilege, idolisation, selective history, 'born this way', 'don't even try because you won't be able to'.

Ugh.

Losing yourself in the moment. Or not.
