Resonance, counterpoint, and confrontation, self and otherness: what does working as a duet mean? What creative methodologies, or creations does it foster across – and among – diverse fields of practice? How is the duet different from other forms of collaboration? When does this experience of alterity become an experience of duality? And what happens then?

Join us for an exploration of these questions in an afternoon of talks, dialogues and presentations focusing on the practice of duets by scholars and artists from performance, theatre, dance, music, visual arts and creative writing. As befits the subject matter, participants will take the floor in pairs in a dynamic reimagining of the traditional symposium.

Of Two Minds will be followed by an evening performance of Control Signal, a duet by Haranczak/Navarre: Karen Christopher and Sophie Grodin. Christopher -  formerly of the renowned American collective Goat Island – and Grodin explore invisible influences and the inexplicable connections we feel but fail to acknowledge.

Keynote speakers to include:

  • Karen Christopher & Sophie Grodin, with Andrea Milde
  • Ernst Fischer & LEIBNIZ
  • Ewan Forster & Chris Heighes
  • Joe Kelleher & Eirini Kartsaki
  • Becka McFadden & Scheherazaad Cooper
  • Amaara Raheem & Tobias Sturmer

Presented by the University of Roehampton, Drama, Theatre and Performance department in partnership with Sadler’s Wells.
