      If I Can't Dance Tonight with Emma Hedditch

      Frascati Theater, Amsterdam
    2. The seventh If I Can’t Dance Tonight featured Emma Hedditch. Emma presented the new performance When I Do This, Can You Feel Something?, in which she looked at the rituals and behaviours the discipline of performance is producing.

      She also explored, together with the audience, the social aspect that the get-together of performance incites. “I am interested in how the situation of performance throws up possibilities to explore with a group of people, in a given time and space, the limits and affects of this experience, indexically.”
