On Prospecthill; Portraits of Broomhill
A series of movement portraits with people from Greenock moving through, within and in response to the architecture and open space in Broomhill.
From August - November 2018, dance artist Laura Fisher undertook a residency in Greenock with socially engaged arts charity RIG Arts as their Creative Movement Artist in Residence.
During their time as Movement Artist in Residence, Laura lead a series of workshops with local participants looking at ways into moving, the experiential body in space and their embodied relationship to architecture and environment.
Emerging from these enquiries Laura created a site responsive and site specific performance title "On Prospecthill; Portraits of Broomhill". The performance involved screening a multiscreen dance film featuring movement portraits of different people moving in and around Broomhill, onto the 60ft gable end of the Broomhill Tavern in Broomhill upper car park, with live score by musicians Long Green Jaws. The performance seeking to shift the social choreography of the space by temporarily transforming the car park into a site for performance and community gathering.
