Macdonald, A., Buckley, H., 2017.

Barnaby Arts Festival: Socially engaged screendance research:

Output Type:Exhibition
Venue:Barnaby Arts Festival
Dates:1/5/2017
Number of Works:4

The aim of this project was to research ways of developing screendance practice with the public. Over three months Anna Macdonald and Hannah Buckley worked with Macclesfield locals to think about how to bring attention to the movement of every day actions and activities. They worked with members of the Macclesfield chess group, a local gardener in her allotment and two silk screen artists from the Print Shop. In the work they have considered the movement of these people's activities but also what is gained from doing them.
The research sharing involved conversations about the research, screenings of some of the footage that was filmed and ideas of how they could develop the project in the future.
