In February 2010 Neon Productions were commissioned by Dance Digital, Swindon Dance and Arts Council England with additional support from Jerwood Space to re-develop the work Falling From Trees.
Falling From Trees is a 30-minute production set in a psychiatric hospital that delves into the mind of a resident patient. The piece explores how a neurological disease can alter your sense of self and relationship to the world and people around you.
‘Concise and eerie, this is a poignant work’ – Lauren Strain (Muso Magazine).
The work features video projection by filmmaker Alice Powell (National Film and Television School) and original music composed by the critically acclaimed composer Peter Broderick.
‘A songwriter of beguiling depth' – The Sunday Times
