Flight on The Parkinson

Parkinson Tower, University of Leeds, UK (2009)

Large-scale outdoor projection of two video-dance shorts plus soundtrack onto the iconic Parkinson tower, Leeds University, as part of the Light Night Leeds 09 festival. The Parkinson is one of the most recognisable edifices of Leeds. With its distinctive white clock tower perched on the top of a hill, it can be seen for miles.
The first film was shot with aerial dancers on the side of an industrial chimney in Germany and the second with a dancer in Sicily, on the lofty heights of the Scala dei Turchi.
They cycled from dusk till dawn.
