Life Forces is performed by Jane Mason and Phil Smith; and created in collaboration with writer/performer Phil Smith, dramaturg David Williams, sculptor Sophia Clist and animator Magali Charrier.
Lighting design is by Chloe Kenward.
The initial trigger for Life Forces came from Jane's father’s old slide projector and his archive of slides. The work explores light, change, place and home; and the cycle of things being built and falling down. The research process during residencies in 2013/2014 enhanced the initial starting points with collaboration at the centre of how the work evolved.
Trailer filmed and edited by Phil Peel.
Life Forces is funded by Arts Council England, is commissioned by ICIA University of Bath and supported by: Swindon Dance, The Place, Pavilion Dance South West, The Point, South East Dance, Exeter City Council, Exeter University and Kaleider.
