Programme details

Film screenings

Six programmes of international films showcase a breadth of approaches to filmmaking. Each screening is framed by an invitation to consider the whole range of sensory experiences, including visceral, proprioceptive and haptic awareness.


A programme of absorbing installations that play with space, place and perception


Artist-led workshops delve into aspects of embodied filmmaking and kinesthetic spectatorship

Keynote speech: Karen Wood

Kinesthesia will be framed by keynote speaker Karen Wood, author of Kinesthetic Empathy: Conditions for Viewing, who will speak about meeting points between screen-based practices, ecosystems and kinesthetic empathy

Research Space: Artificial Facts

12-16 July 2021

In the week leading up to the festival, artist Philippe Blanchard (FR/UK) leads an in-depth five-day lab that combines somatic practices with questions related to spectatorship.

Using technology of camera and projector as mediating tools, this research raises questions on the subject of the view that one poses on others, and subtly questions us on the right and obligations to act and to react.
The work will involve practical, experiential combination of embodied moving, connecting to skeletal structures and bodily systems; playful seeing and witnessing; and using the technology as a tool to question somatic meaning-making.
