Wales’ ground-breaking film innovators 4Pi Productions have launched a kickstart campaign to help take this young artform forward.
The Cardiff-based film-makers are creating a new project called Liminality which not only spans dance and video art forms but international cultural boundaries.
Liminality is a collaboration between Wales and India supporting the creation of a new 360° immersive Fulldome dance film choreographed by Wales based dance artists Kim Noble and Hugh Stanier and directed by 4Pi Productions.
The piece will be a collaboration of cultures and technology. A snapshot into the constant cycle of transition and change. Four dancers move from industrial landscapes to coastal landscapes, in South Wales, Delhi and Goa. The piece will highlight the similarities these two countries share, and the changing relationship as India supports Wales with its industrial might. The cultural residue left by colonialism upon India is moving into a new phase. The ritualised movements of dance in a 360º immersive environment conjure feelings of something much older than civilisation. A connection to the unrelenting cycle of creation, being harnessed through motion.
Liminality is a partnership between 4Pi Productions, Chapter’s dance programme Coreo Cymru and The Danceworx India and it is supported by British Council and Wales Arts International.
