Film Screening at NativityHub Leeds
A screening of two short films made by dance artist Rachel Dean whilst she was pregnant. The films will be followed by a chance to ask Rachel questions about her experience of maternity and artistic practice.
Nativity (13 min) is a full-body collision with the enduring power of the myth and magic of the Virgin Mary. Movement, song and things that sparkle combine to create an irreverent and at times surprisingly devotional solo. Created with film-artist Lucy Barker.
A bag is packed, small clothes are laid out and a cot is built and waiting. What do you do now? Whilst I’m Waiting (4 min) is a short improvised dance film beautifully evoking the strength, im/patience and anticipation of the last few weeks of a first pregnancy. Music by Oliver Dover.
Saturday 12th March, 7pm, Union 105, 105 Chapeltown Road, Leeds, LS7 3HY.
