On Dancing and Farting
Hamish talks about when politicians or protesters start dancing. Times when untoward movements interrupt the expected choreographies of western politics. He also talks about when politicians fart and puke and other times that our bodies involuntarily interrupt social hierarchies.
Hamish MacPherson is a choreographer who makes performances, installations, workshops, games, writings, images and other things. Often relating to the embodied aspects of politics and philosophy and from a heterosexual, white, cis-male perspective.

Responding to the title ‘Bodies of Interruption’ this talk draws on previous work in which Lisa Baraitser has argued that the particular encounters with others that we could call ‘maternal encounters’ hold open the potential for a radical form of ethics that runs counter to capitalist modes of productivity, temporality and exchange through their capacity to interrupt or throw us ‘off the subject’.
