DANCING SCULPTURE – Sarah Lynch-Jones, Maddie Banwell, Olivia Wiles. Initial designs & concept // Initial Concept: Studio Hotmess

Under the heat of the daytime sun, the dancing sculpture provides shade with their straw skirts. As the sun moves around the dancer, the people sheltering from the sun would be encouraged to move with them, finding the shade that they provide. At night, their gestural human forms become visible through their skirts as they are lit with neon flex providing a focal point for orienting yourself. The sculpture is handmade, very colourful and moves with the wind in a sentient manner, making them feel alive too and providing interaction & connection with festival goers. They will be ambitious tall structures, made using natural materials and reused timber where possible, and might just be involved in some immersive performance.
