Caught By The River to host talk on the perspectives of dance floors
Arts and culture platform Caught by the River are set to host a discussion on experiences and perspectives of dancefloors.
Taking place at The Social on Wednesday 6th November, the evening entitled 'Places & Spaces – Reflections from the perspective of the dancefloor' will bring together four writers, Kayo Chingonyi, Rob Gallagher, Emma Warren and Belinda Zhawi, to share their unique experiences of dancefloors across London and beyond.
Each writer has played a part in putting their perspectives to the page. Kayo Chingonyi, who's latest book Kumukanda won the Dylan Thomas Prize, writes about the lure significance of music and the lure of the dancefloor, while Rob Gallagher's bespoke poetry collection Dancefloors of England presents the dance floor as an underwater kingdom where connections are made. Also joining the talk is journalist Emma Warren, who's recent book Make Some Space discusses the importance of people needing spaces together and dance, and musician and artist Belinda Zhawi who weaves together stories from the dance floors of South East London and South Africa in her recent collection Small Inheritances.
