From Joan Baxter: BTG members might like to know about the world premier of a collaborative ‘dance installation’ project I’ve been involved in.
The installation consists of a woven tapestry with a dance video projected onto it accompanied by a soundscape. The inspiration for the piece is the short story, The Weaver, by George Mackay Brown. My tapestry reflects the seasons, moods and inhabitants of the story and is designed with the dancer and her movements in mind. It was a hugely exciting foray into unfamiliar territory in lots of ways. See images at
