Dance Performance Intervention: Imaginarium

Detail from Imaginairum at Tate Liverpool

Imaginarium is an exploration through dance of the metamorphic work of Leonora Carrington. Developed partly through a residency at Crookhey Hall, Carrington’s childhood home, the work captures the physicality, colour and energy found within Carrington’s sketches and paintings. The performer's embodied response has been a direct reaction to the artist’s sense of mobilization, colour and imagery and their experience at Crookhey Hall.

Performed by James Hewison (Edge Hill University) and Michelle Man (Edge Hill University). Original music by Alfonso García de la Torre Rey.
