Mound Movements

Working alongside the Artist Director of Landance (Ella Huhne) & the Youth Programme Co-ordinator of b-side (Molly Scarborough) the 10 dance students explored their relationship to the landscape through movement. Inspired by the geology and history of the Neolithic and Bronze age barrows on the South Dorset Ridgeway they developed their own performance for film. 
Working alongside Molly the students decided how to edit the video footage and how to exhibit it also. The footage within this installation was shot by Richard Tomlinson.
 
Many thanks to Steve Wallis, Senior Archaeologist from Dorset County Council, for introducing the students to the South Dorset Ridgeway and giving them some insight into what life would’ve been like all those years ago. 
 
We'd also like to thank Fran Randell (PE & Dance Specialist at IPACA) for her support throughout the process of this project.
 
And a huge thanks goes to Dorset AONB, the South Dorset Ridgeway Landscape Partnership (funded by Heritage Lottery Fund) and The Arts Development Company for supporting this project!
