MAPS is a performance dance piece considering the world map through its constantly changing nature, as a movable image and a portrait of how globalisation and freedom of information have broken our understanding of borders. Three dancers and a live musician bring the world map to life in a continuous, culturally mixed, rhythmic groove.
Our Dr Sarah Fine worked as academic adviser for this peace, and is warmly inviting us to attend. There will be a Q&A session after the dance, with her, Sivan Rubinstein (the choreographer), and Christina Elliot (Senior Producer at The Place in King’s Cross).
“From Descartes and Locke to philosophers of the present day, learn how great thinkers can help you to understand who you are.”
Professor Bill Brewer hosted this masterclass on 12 September at The Guardian headquarters. More philosophy masterclasses by King’s philosophers can be expected in the future.
