Abstract

Film by Anton Califano. Light Steps Dance Performance was created by Adesola Akinleye (DancingStrong.com) especially for children (3+) and family audiences. The piece takes inspiration from artist Spencer Finch’s current exhibition at Turner Contemporary, Margate 2014; The Skies can’t keep their secret. The work premiered in the exhibition space in August 2014. Light Steps takes the children on a 40-minute magical journey using light and colour as a portal through moments in time. American based sceneographer and costume designer Shelby Newport (University of Michigan) collaborated with Adesola in the making of the work to transport the audience to a colour-filled world of moving dance with live music composed and performed by Jacob Shirley. Characters and objects in the work are inspired by drawing and dance created with children during a residency at Bromstone Primary School in Broadstairs in Summer 2014. The work will tour schools and theatres in 2015/16
