Dulais – Lleisiau Eraill/ Other Voices

Stitching performance…24 February 2023. 1-6pm (photos)

Thanks to dance artists Neil Callaghan, Saffy Setohy & Joanna Young for their generous contributions to this event and to all those who came along and took part. The stitching and re-activation of the gloves eventually formed a strange and wonderful blanket/shroud/caul, which we moved with/in with those assembled. A motile, generative thing it will now have future lives as choreographic object/actant.
