Trio for a Quartet was commissioned by Horsecross Arts in Perth, Scotland. Simon Fildes was asked to make a work responding to a music composition by Debra Salem thats had been commissioned as part of a programmed celebration of the life and works of choreographer Margaret Morris. Morris (1891 -1980) was a British dancer, choreographer and teacher. She was the first proponent of the Isadora Duncan technique in Great Britain. She founded the Margaret Morris Movement, Celtic Ballet, and two Scottish National Ballets in 1947) and in 1960. Morris philosophy that dance is for everyone resonated with Salem's belief that singing is for everyone. She developed the musical score for four vocalists inspired by Margaret Morris Natural Movement technique. This video dance is created for the first movement of that work. Fildes filmed original choreography created by Vincent Hantam for a live work with 3 dancers from Edinburgh University masters degree course. The aim was to create a joyful work that responds to Salem's music and at the same time references and celebrates the work of Morris and her life partner the Scottish Colourist painter JD Ferguson.
