1pm and 3pm
Dance artist & choreographer Laura Amy White has been commissioned to bring Liz West’s Hundreds & Thousands installation to life through movement. Having previously worked alongside West’s Our Spectral Vision to create ‘SPECTRUM’, a short dance film, Laura has developed a real understanding of the artist’s practice.
We need colour, we need celebration, we need to delve back into creative outlets & to be inspired again. This performance will bring Hundreds & Thousands to life through movement & dance. The installation brings with it a playful vibrancy that Laura hopes to capture in her work.
Laura will create both a digital & live response to Hundreds & Thousands.
