Battle 2008 as a project, explores contemporary youth culture in London.
It studies the notion of a scene and the boundaries and barriers that a scene can create.
This video depicts large-scale events directed and produced by me throughout 2008.
For these events, individuals from different music cultures have responded to invitations offered by me. These individuals are asked to select a song, and appear at a specific location and dance on camera to their chosen song.
It distinctly observes not only the stylistic aspects of youth music culture, but also the specific lifestyles that this type of culture can create. The project uses dance to explore these lifestyles and experiment with their varied contexts. The style or manner of dance by the individual and their song represents the music subculture or ‘scene’ in which they associate themselves.
The final large-scale event was held live at the private view of the BA Photography degree show at London College Of Communication in June 2009.
