Event Description

City Glimpses is a site specific dance project which brings dance performance into the public space, and a sense of magic and poetry into the everyday. It is conceived and directed by choreographer Sophia Lycouris (ECA), and premiered in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013.

 

Specifically trained dancers Tessa Goodwin (Moray House), Georgia F Moffa (RCS) and Abbie Wood (RCS) recreate cinematic story fragments behind glass surfaces around the Edinburgh city centre. They present dance improvisations based on their personal movement responses to the architectural and dynamic character of the performance sites, and informed by writings on architecture and the urban experience submitted to this project by several authors. Texts include excerpts from forthcoming publications The Memory Palace: A Book of Lost Interiors by Ed Hollis and Warsaw Surfaces: Transpositions, Objects, Shadows by Ella Chmielewska, as well as work by several MSc students in Creative Writing and Performance Writing at the University of Edinburgh, UK.

The performances take place in three different locations in the city of Edinburgh simultaneously. Audiences, as well as passer-bys, watch these performances through the glass, while internet users can attend them remotely through live streaming at http://www.recalesce.net/streaming.php . Musicians of the Edimpro group, including Yati Durant and Michael Edwards join this project online and perform their own improvisations, which are available via the streaming

 

This work is part of the New Works project, a long-term collaboration between the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the University of Edinburgh (Edinburgh College of Art and Moray House School of Education), which includes several performance works curated by Professor of New Works Peter Manning and presented in Edinburgh’s new Fringe festival venue Paterson’s Land, under the series title Oxygen.
