Liminality is a partnership between Chapter’s dance programme Coreo Cymru, multimedia company 4Pi Productions and The Danceworx India. The project supports the creation of a new 360° Fulldome dance film co-choreographed by Wales-based dance artists Kim Noble and Hugh Stanier and filmed/directed by 4Pi Productions, a cutting edge media production company. It includes a cast of over 30 contemporary dancers from India and a new sound score created by internationally-renowned musician Grey Filastine.
This piece explores the juxtaposition between spirituality and industry, and will highlight the similarities between India and Wales and the evolving relationship between the two countries. It is being filmed at coastal and urban locations in South Wales, Delhi and Goa, to create a short immersive 360° experience of the contemporary dance aesthetic.
In July 2017, two Indian contemporary dancers from Danceworx Manas Yellapantula and Devasmita Sharma came to Wales for a rehearsal with Welsh contemporary dancers, they filmed in locations in South Wales including the National Assembly for Wales, Trevilis Bay, Newport Transporter Bridge and the Cardiff Bay barrage.
The project goes to India in November 2017 to continue filming on locations in Delhi and Goa.
The Liminality 360º film will be available to view from April 2018 through online virtual reality platforms. It will be screened at venues across India and within the Dance Dome 360º mobile cinema, in venues across Wales and other countries.
