Shifting Perspectives

Lighting has been an integral part of recent Restless work. In 2020 our work Seeing Through Darkness was part show/part lighting installation. In this new work Shifting Perspectives light artist Matthew Adey from House of Vnholy and Michelle will explore light and reflection to create a new innovative installation and dance theatre work.

“I am interested in how mirrors reflect and distort the human form and the trickery of light and reflection. The moving mirrors will enable the dancers to control what the audience see and challenge the audience’s viewpoint. Shifting Perspectives will be an immersive experience that asks the audience to contemplate how a stationary body can become a moving body and vice versa. Playing with perception this work will turn reality upside down.” – Michelle Ryan, Artistic Director.
