Now more than ever it is important for artists to take ownership of public spaces, whether they are structures of power, places to gather or historic landmarks. Dancers respond to the energy of the cities to which they are connected.
Helder Delgado moves across the city from Town Hall Square to Jubilee Square. Tia-Monique Uzor dances in the rain at Leicester’s clock tower, as members of the public look on. Jessica Walker responds to the history and spirit of Bishop Street Methodist Church.
Commissioned by Serendipity Institute for Black Arts and Heritage, starring dancers Tia-Monique Uzor, Helder Delgado and Jessica Walker, documented by filmmaker Ashley Karrell, Panoptical.
Filmed for Let’s Dance International Frontiers 2022 and the Black Digital Dance Revolution.
