Published by Topographies of the Obsolete Publications, November 2015, (peer reviewed) This publication focused upon the exhibition 'Topographies of the Obsolete: Vociferous Void', which formed part of the British Ceramics Biennial in 2013. Chloë Brown’s chapter entitled 'Dancing in the Boardroom', took the experience of researching in the abandoned Spode ceramics factory as a starting point in order to unpick and reflect on the development of her film 'Dancing in the Boardroom (Turnin’ my Heartbeat Up)' that arose out of this process and the questions that this film asks in relation to post-industry, dance, music and the subtle rebellion of dancing in a forbidden place. This publication is part of the Topographies of the Obsolete international research project, with involvement of multi disciplinary artists from several nations and art institutions in workshops and residencies to investigate the remnants of the original Spode factory site. Topographies of the Obsolete is a significant R&D collaborative project that both deepens and develops understanding of the post-industrial landscape with reference to the industrial ruin. Main partners: Bergen Academy of Art and Design, Norway (KHIB) and the British Ceramics Biennial. Partners: The Royal Academy of Art in Copenhagen, Denmark (KDK) , Muthesius Kunsthochschule, Germany (MK), Sheffield Hallam University(SHU), Nottingham Trent University (NTU) , Newcastle-upon-Tyne University (NU) and Bucks New University (BUCKS). Keywords : Topographies of the Obsolete, Stoke-on-Trent, Chloe Brown, Dancing in the Boardroom, Northern Soul, artist
