STANCE PODCAST  Award-winning arts, culture & current affairs from diverse, global perspectives. Out now: Class Ceiling in the Arts; Jessie Ware; Hofesh Shechter OBE

East Wall at the Tower of London will see over 150 dancers and musicians fill the moat of one of London’s most iconic buildings for an extraordinary outdoor performance, inspired by the stories of the communities that have grown up around the Tower. We catch up with the mastermind behind the project, internationally-celebrated artist and choreographer Hofesh Shechter to learn more about it and what inspired him to dance having found the art form in an unconventional way. The performance is also created by four rising choreographers including Duwane Taylor who speaks to us about how the peasants revolt inspired this piece.

been thinking about this a lot since watching Hannah Gadsby’s beautiful and important Netflix special... how sensitivity is always a sign of weakness, how we’ve bred humans to admire and fight for a lack of sensitivity. just last night I said to a friend “maybe I’m too sensitive” like it was my fault that someone had hurt me, instead of being able to acknowledge that they had hurt me, and that that was enough of a reason to feel what I was feeling. It doesn’t mean that I get to sit in my feelings but guess what—the easiest way for that to NOT happen is for our feelings to be acknowledged in the first place. as I look around, so much of the violence that exists is people in power posturing a lack of concern for the plight and lives of other people. sensitivity is vital, as is perspective. I refuse to feel embarrassed by the fact that this is how I am. I embrace it. Sensitivity is a strength. Awareness is a strength. I refuse to be told that I feel too much, as if “not feeling” is what we should be striving towards. It’s disparaging to think that young kids are being taught this now, when such violence exists in the current social psyche. Maybe the way forward is not the way it’s been done? (via @subliming.jpg)

So great to be judging the radio category for the @koestlertrust with the wonderful Beth from @boomshakalakaproductions and Dolly Feaver. We listened to such brilliantly produced and presented content from inmates all over the UK - was an honour to give out the awards. ❤️

In our new episode, we speak to the brilliant artist @joymiessi about her heroes in the art world and her thoughts on what institutions can do better to support artists from working class backgrounds, in a special in-depth report. You can also catch her show in London this month @ 198 Gallery Brixton! Go show her some ❤️. Also featured in the episode: @thewhitepube @jessieware @hofeshco and more.

70 years of the NHS in Britain. So grateful. Access to healthcare should be a right, not a privilege. Some great stories on @bbcwomanshour this week to mark the occasion! Thank you to everyone that works for the NHS - we appreciate you so much. X #nhs #70years image via @theststyle
