The Open Studio comprised three installations to showcase work emerging from our research. Visitors were encouraged to sit in the studio and watch clips from our workshops through the mesh of elastic. The clips chosen tracked early experimentation with the dancer Hannah Kidd through to choreographed movement taken from efforts to move through the elastic.

Two complete Tea Break films were installed in frames in the dining room where they played side by side. As they are different lengths the action never coincided in the same way. Tea Break I and Tea Break II can be seen on VIMEO.

We also projected the last piece we made in the kitchen, on the door through which the dancer was filmed. Titled Living Room, it takes choreographed movement away from the elastic and plays out in a domestic context.


The first showcase to share research from our Unentitled project will be at my studio in Bury St Edmunds, 12.30 – 16.30 on Sunday 28 September.

The two films Tea Break I & II will be showing, plus a choreographed piece from our last workshop. The studio will be filled with elastic with projected footage of trial work from the five workshops. The purpose of the Open Studio is to test installations of the films and get feedback from visitors about how the work communicates our intentions.
