The Journey Started Here… in a room full of artists, with an infinite number of journeys travelled, from all walks of art and the possibility to come up with a thousand responses. The Journey Started Here is a collection of creations, a jumble of journeys and an exploration of the ephemeral witnesses to our day to day lives.
Leaping Out Season 2 challenged 12 artists from a wide range of disciplines to respond to the idea of journey beginnings in just 7 days. After an intense week of workshops, rehearsals and getting intentionally lost in around Lancaster, they stumbled upon the holy grail of the artistic world… A collaborative harmony.
With a range of installations, sound compositions, live performances and film, we discover the adventure to be had in the mundane, the memories that shape who we are, and the routes you make for yourself when taking the path you least expected. Composers working alongside theatre practitioners to see just how far their two feet can take them. Dancers meet visual artists to map where their bodies have been, film makers and performers take a trip down memory lane, while anthropologists and textile artists come together to transform the materials around them.
So join us as we turn The Dukes DT3 into a shop of curiosities, after all, who needs to take 7 steps to the moon when there is so much to see in the here and the now?
