The sky's the limit

Blue Room Moves artist Tony Carroll has been working with local dance artist Helen Cherry and digital artist Noel Jones.

Carroll was interested in exploring dance for the camera. The team has been playing with different technologies and dancing in unusual spaces. This new work is an experiment using a 360 camera to project film alongside the artists performing live.

Diana Disley will perform with dance artists from the Liverpool Improvisation Collective including, Paula Hampson, Mary Prestidge and Andrea Buckley.

Disley has been developing her movement by using a range of materials; photographs, objects and sounds to inspire new ways of moving. The artists will explore ways to be present, relate and create in the moment through playful improvisation.

Elvis in Blue

Elvis in Blue is a new performance-in-development by members of the Blue Room Moves group and guest artist Will Dickie.

Over 6 sessions the group have been learning to create together, and they like Elvis, so he's here too. Be part of a live, joyful space where the group will share creative movement explorations with an audience for the first time.

"Thank you, thank you very much." - Elvis
