Designed for small spaces – this digital choreography project special with Philippa Donnellan took an oblique look at life around the kitchen table.
“Leading The Choreography Project #17 and working creatively with everyone involved was an absolute pleasure. As the title suggests, it was an unusual dance adventure for us all; certainly it took us a little time to become accustomed to moving together in the virtual, online world. It was great however that everyone dived in so enthusiastically to explore ideas, invent choreography for the camera, and grapple with the varied technology. With respect to our new found realities amid the current restrictions, it was fascinating to see people reflect upon something they felt of personal value or that was a meaningful experience – and how they responded by creating their unique recipe on film. My thanks to everyone who took part – and congratulations on creating these wonderfully UNUSUAL ROUTINES AND ODD RECIPES.” –Philippa Donnellan
