Experiments in Island Walking Junction 4#1

Yield Performance Series
Lanchester Gallery & Coventry Ring Road
October 2011

Introduction

Experiments in Island Walking was a three day open studio event exploring the interrelationship between solo walking and solo dancing in the city centre of Coventry

Continuing to explore the somatic informed approach to outdoor work central to the Enter & Inhabit project, this solo work by Natalie explored moving between the outside space of the Coventry Ring Road and the indoor art space of the Lanchester Gallery which sits poised over junction 4 of the ring road. Through a process of daily walking and dancing, the work accumulated writings, photos and movement improvisation scores across the three days in collaboration echoing back to previous encounters with the Ring Road.
