Urban Dance Interventions

Some recordings from a series made in collaboration with Irish dancer David Bellwood. These impromptu dances are recorded in various parts of London, and are concerned with questions of tradition and diaspora, as well as investigating the effect of urban architecture on the dancer’s body. Dance is a form of thought for the dancer, and the environment disrupts or defines that thought in different ways. There is a mutual erosion taking place, as well as a collaboration between the surfaces of the city and the acoustics of the dancer’s movement.
