Charlie Ashwell was in residence at iC4C from Monday 3 to Friday 7 January 2022 as part of their ongoing research, Choreography as an Occult Practice.
Charlie used this residency to explore the notion of ‘visions’, looking at choreographic practices as ways of seeing, knowing, intuiting, imagining, remembering, predicting, projecting and hallucinating.
How and what does dance allow us to see and know? Charlie uses dancing and writing to explore the relationship between truth and falsehood, memory and prophecy, past and future, fiction and reality; using the imaginary to probe and disrupt our collective sense of what is possible.
