Episode 8 Listen to the final episode of Season 2 of The ICA Podcast! Featuring academic, curator, choreographer and director of the ICA, Jay Pather. Pather reflects on the lasting influence of his personal, educational and political background on his artistic practice and extensive body of work. And, in the second half of the conversation, we dive into his visceral and haunting dance work, performed by Siwela Sonke Dance Theatre, Body of Evidence – from the intricate workshop process that brought the performance into being, to the work’s grappling with precarity, memory, the inexpressibility of pain, and the long aftereffects of trauma lodged in the body, for the individual and for the nation.  Listen on Apple podcastsSpotifyStitcherPodcast Addicton our website; or wherever you find podcasts. Image removed.
