    Dora Maar: Out of the Shadow

    Dora Maar: Out of the Shadow

    In this LIVE episode from our 100th Dash Café (January 2020) we delve into the life and legacy of French Surrealist icon Dora Maar.
    The photographer and artist’s radical work strikingly depicts the anxieties of interwar Europe and the internal horrors of the mind. Yet Maar was often overlooked, her role as Picasso’s lover and ‘weeping woman’ dominating world view, until now.
    In January 2020 a major exhibition of her work travelled from the Centre Pompidou to the Tate Modern, introducing many to her work for the first time.
    In this episode Dash Arts Artistic Director Josephine Burton talks to the exhibition's curators Damarice Amao and Karolina Lewandowska, along with discussion and performances from poet Victoria Adukwei Bulley and Finnish musician Marouf Majidi.
     
    With Poet in the City and support from TelepART and Institut Francais

    Art in adversity: Tadeusz Kantor's fighting spirit

    Art in adversity: Tadeusz Kantor's fighting spirit

    Our first tailor-made podcast episode Art in adversity: Tadeusz Kantor's fighting spirit delves into the work of Polish artist and theatre maker Tadeusz Kantor, whose work inspired the likes of Joseph Beuys (whom Kantor worked closely with), choreographer Pina Bausch and theatre company Complicité, to name a few.
    Kantor made work under extraordinarily challenging times. Under the Nazi occupation of Poland, he founded the Independent Underground Theatre, and later carried on creating work throughout Poland’s communist regime. Dash Arts Artistic Director Josephine Burton investigates how he navigated the politics and continued to create, and what we can take from Kantor during our own challenging times.
    We speak to Natalia Zarzecka, Director of Cricoteka (Centre for Documentation of the Art of Tadeusz Kantor) in Krakow, Puppeteer Nenagh Watson, filmmaker Duncan Ward and producer and director David Gothard, all of whom worked with Kantor, as well as Dr Mischa Twitchin, who teaches Polish Theatre at Goldsmiths University.

    To see Duncan's films of Kantor and clips to videos of Kantor's work, please head to our website at http://www.dasharts.org.uk/podcast where you can also find more information and podcast episodes.

    LIVE: Europe and the Velvet Revolution - 30 Years On

    LIVE: Europe and the Velvet Revolution - 30 Years On

    In a time where talk of change and revolution is on everyone's lips, we revisit our November 2019 Dash Café, which explored the impact of the 1989 revolution that caused the collapse of the Soviet Union, 30 years on. Through the prism of artists, filmmakers and writers from across the Czech Republic and Slovakia, we asked whether that extraordinary spirit of activism still exists today.
    Speakers included Tereza Nvotová, Zuzana Kepplová, Ondřej Štindl and diplomat Monika MacDonagh-Pajerova, who discussed the impact of this legacy on their work and whether it continues to have an impact today.
    This event was created in partnership with the Czech Centre and The Embassy of Slovak Republic, part of events celebrating the 30th anniversary of 1989.
    The night featured insightful conversation about the countries who revolted and joined the EU, just as we face leaving it.
    Edited by Martina Šimkovičová, Radio Slovakia International.
