BlueRoom Disability Group

The Blue Room is a local Liverpool adult group with mental health concerns and disabilities including autism and asperges.

I ran some workshops with them as part of my Shadow Dance project, devising activities that explored emotions linked to expression through movement, sound, costume and animation.

It was incredible time spent together. I sought to create a comfortable environment that promoted self-confidence through enjoyable and stimulating experimentation and debate that enabled each individual to have a right to express their own opinions and for each  contribution to be valued within the group dynamic and our exchanges together.

What resulted was a movement session as well as a fantastic video work that combined voice recordings, sound play and animation in response to Shadow Dance.
