Since the 1980s computers have modelled the way birds flock, identifying three simple rules that govern their movement: separation, alignment and cohesion. Aeon is a listening manoeuvre; a participatory experiment of sound, movement and group dynamics to queer and question what we think of as ‘natural’. Drawing on bird flocking strategies it invites you to navigate public space in a communal yet deeply personal experience. As we walk multiple paths toward a future in flux, Aeon envisions the space between civic responsibility and personal consent; between soaring clouds of wings and piles of pigeon poo to offer a paradoxical, complex and ever emerging horizon.

The Aeon Lab will hinge around discussions, listening exercises and physical workshops, based on walking, flocking and group navigation in outdoor sites. It is not a ‘dance’ workshop and no dance experience is required. The lab aims to bring together participants from a range of experiences and ages.
