Referencing JMW Turner’s Keelman Heaving Coals by Moonlight we will explore the contrast between the rural & industrial.
Composer Peter Coyte, choreographer Dora Frankel, musician Martin Elliott & one dancer TBC will be making a gentle ‘dérive’ walk recording sound & responding to the landscape with movement & gestures with the purpose of gathering material for a sound, music & dance performance.
Coyte & Frankel have used walks such as these as a starting points for previous projects including ‘The Unfolding Sky – Turner in The North’ and ‘Figures in a Floating Landscape’ premiered last year as part of The Turner Prize celebrations.
Will be of particular interest for artists, dancers, field recordists & musicians.
