Moving Kinship: Queer Britain

Moving Kinship at Queer Britain

Moving Kinship creates dance with and for people from diverse communities

Moving Kinship is a form of artistic activism underpinned by transdisciplinary feminist research that takes place in UK and international Hubs. The project involves creating bespoke live and digital performances for diverse audiences as a way of bearing witness to and engaging with, issues of loss, vulnerability, othering, care and hope, that chime with experiences of mental health inequalities, the COVID 19 global pandemic and our ecological crisis. To date, Beatrice Allegranti Company has worked with families affected by young onset dementia, LGBTQ+ communities, with climate activists, across NHS adult mental health services, with NHS clinicians, and with artists and scientists in the UK, Norway, the Netherlands and Japan. Through artistic collaboration, the project Moving Kinship creates dance with and for people from diverse communities.

Supported by Arts Council England, Surrey Arts/Dance 21 and Public Health, the participatory project is led by Beatrice Allegranti Company and in partnership with public and grass roots organisations across the arts, health and science sectors and academic partners.

This page documents our Moving Kinship hub at Queer Britain, the UK’s first dedicated LGBTQI+ museum.

A short film from our Moving Kinship Hub at Queer Britain will be posted here soon.
