What if.... we could view all this as dance

Artists and curators Becky Edmunds, Claudia Kappenberg and Lucy Cash explore non-dance film and video work in relation to choreographic composition as well as discussing what might be the 'dance' in unconventional screen dance works.

Originally from a background in choreography, performance and theatre,

Lucy began her career as a solo artist in 2000 with a three minute commission from the BFI / FilmFour to make Three Minute Wonder. Her work has been show on BBC2, BBC4, Channel4 and FilmFour as well as at international festivals.

In her practice she is drawn to developing playful concepts that use shifts in perception or logic as a starting point. She creates pieces that are poetic and scientific, philosophical and humorous and intimate and political at the same time. She often works with a range of people from different communities and fields of expertise and increasingly explores notions of self-invention and story-telling - often working on the edges between fiction and reality.

As well as solo projects, she also makes collaborative performance works. Recent collaborations include works with Anna Kryztstek, Christina Ciupke, Goat Island Performance and Rajni Shah. In 2010 she also collaborated on a film with Becky Edmunds - Seven Ways South - for the Siobhan Davies Space.
