Moving Plymouth allowed us to work with over 500 local residents to produce a series of visual art vignettes including animated dance portraits, biographical films and place-making moving images. Using locations such as the Plymouth Breakwater and The Citadel, we reimagined the publics’ perception of Plymouth’s built environment. Over 12-months the project involved creative workshops that led to performances against extraordinary maritime backdrops, turning the city into a stage. The work animated into a series was narrated by Dawn French and is now a permanent digital installation at The Box due to open Spring 2020.
Moving Plymouth was produced in partnership with Miranda Housden, Director of Institution of Civil Engineers South West, Arts Council England, The Box Plymouth, Plymouth Council, British Library, Kier, Hydrock, University of Plymouth, Mayflower 400 and Plymouth Culture.
