Elemental Dialogues – Air is a practice-led research project that has been running for approximately 18 months. It explores what happens when the short film Air is handed over to a network of poets /writers, sound artists/musicians, and scholars, with the original soundtrack removed. Each contributor then produces an interpretation of Air, through their own diverse practice. These interpretations are then re-embedded into the film, creating new, pluridisciplinary artworks, each of which tells a different and sometimes radically unexpected story. At St John’s we will explore embodied interpretations through projection, music, words, dance and tacit drawing.
Poets: Joan McGavin, Briony Bennett, Steve Fowler, Marcus Slease, Owen Lowery, Tami Haaland, Kate Koning, Sara Maitland, Brian Evans-Jones.
Sound Artists and musicians: Jan Hendrickse, Sebastiane Hegarty, Howard Moody, Abby Wollston, Tara Stuckey, Steve Kemper, Aaron D’Sa, Deepak Venkateshvaran, Steve Emmerson
Child dancers (filmed): Jean and Iris Roffey.
