Dancing With Light is a bespoke dance and photography project that captures a fun play between human movement and light. Earlier this year local residents took part in a series of dance and photography workshops both online and at Stevenage Museum. During the workshops participants created their own imagery, learning to use slow shutter speeds and light painting techniques and then had the opportunity be photographed by Sam Ivin for the final exhibition. The project explored the theme of home and trace we leave behind. The images capture the joy of movement in waves of colour and vibrant abstract shapes.
An exhibition of the final images taken by Sam Ivin, with movement direction from Hannah Delaney, will be installed in Stevenage Museum form 3 September to 16 October 2021.
