Purlieus is the result of a three year research, development and refinement process between NDCWales House Choreographer Lee Johnston and Lighting Designer Joe Fletcher. Through exploring the relationship between movement, light and animation they have created an immersive experience for both performer and audience.
The light and animation moves with, encloses, reaches out to and dances independently of the performer. It creates particular perceptual experiences for the audience which are suggestive of both the performer's journey and the boundaries they are confined to; their purlieus.
Performed by Annabeth Berkely, Natalie Corne & Eleesha Drennan.
Music by Four Tet
