It was a great pleasure to take the art direction and costume design Of Family Portrait a new work directed by Leila McMillan and created in collaboration with 7 dancers, a musician/composer and a team of designers. Developed using Flying Low and Passing Through techniques, this work takes you through a constellation of portraits, exploring our heritages and whom we consider our ‘family’.
‘A rare and precious thing’
‘Visually stunning montages’
Watch our Family Portrait unfold before your eyes. Love, humour, frustration, dysfunction and harmony. Portraits of our past will tell you a multitude of stories. So close our whirling energy will brush against your skin.
