Maybe there will be stars (2019) is a moving image work I produced as artist in residence during the Haarlem Artspace  Collectivism Residency. 

Each day of the residency I facilitated a movement practice with the residency artists, guided by my own interest in embodied encounters with landscape, and the imprints left on people in communion with the environment. Maybe there will be stars (2019) witnesses the conclusion of our collective daily practice engaging with landscape through embodiment.

Corporeal, visceral and organic, Maybe there will be stars (2019) situates viewers in Wirksworth’s rural landscape, just outside of Haarlem Mill.

Shaping the visual experience of dancing, my presence and relationship with the people, the place and the camera, is gradually revealed: people dancing together – and separately – outdoors.
