This film and performance installation explored our embedded interconnectedness to one another and the earth, generating work which resonates deeply with the place in which it was created.
The film was created in a coastal area on the Lleyn Peninsula with three dancers, their two children, aged three and six and a dog. The plasticity of the children to their environment and their experience of nature and landscape was integral to the creative process and much value was placed on their contribution.
This project toured to the North West, Wales and North Yorkshire in 2009.
An offshoot entitled ‘A Moment in Time’, was developed by Lisa Dowler, Paula Hampson and their daughters and performed at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool in 2010. This improvised performance was in relation to an exhibition by female artists exploring motherhood and nature.
Performers: Lisa Dowler, Paula Hampson, Cath Hawkins, Siena Dowler-Mercer, Niamh Mcardle, Jess the dog. Film: June GerstenRoberts
