  • This photo is from a rehearsal of Walking Piece. There is a magnetic moment when performers navigate the narrow staircase in single fashion and then open up and interact with each other and the audience. Here I'm trying to frame the dancer with the vertical and horizontal lines of the staircase.

  • During the performance, the internal staircase at Siobhan Davies Studios is contrasted with the external fire exit. Here performers unleash their energy in song and dance and communicate to the outside world. I've used a long exposure and rotation of the camera to evoke this transition. http://www.siobhandavies.com/dance/creative-projects/creative-explorations.html
  • There are quiet and contemplative moments in Walking Piece. You can really share these close up with the performers in the intimate setting of the building. Here the dancer concentrates on flexing that arm and adopting an angular pose, once again framed by the staircase. http://www.siobhandavies.com/dance/creative-projects/creative-explorations.html
  • This is the start of the journey up the staircase with slow, repetitive, start, stop, backward and forward movement. http://www.siobhandavies.com/dance/creative-projects/creative-explorations.html
  • Once again drawn to the staircase and the architectural framing of the dancer captured in a long exposure. http://www.siobhandavies.com/dance/creative-projects/creative-explorations.html
