Dwell.in.g

dwell.in.g is a project created by Choreographer Rebecca Evans and Visual Artist Mira Loew in collaboration with 10 professional artists and the residents of Waltham Forest.

A physical response capturing the momentum of change, stillness of isolation and the personal stories that dwell in our homes and community.

The making of dwell.in.g took place between May-August 2020.  Using projectors people invited a virtual dancer into their space, creating a response that incorporated themselves, the dancer and their home.  Developed through a series of questions and conversations this was a unique making process with each participant, offering a space for people to reflect, create and speak about their experiences as we moved in and out of isolation.  A collection of 97 videos, 126 photos, 10 pieces of original writing and 12 original sound scores were created. 

For Leytonstone Loves Film a selection of videos, writing and sound scores will be shared as a 360 projection mapped experience in Leytonstone Library theatre.  Funny, intimate and powerful, these films are a beautiful collection of the individual and shared journeys taken over 2020. 

dwell.in.g was commissioned by Waltham Forest Council as part of Waltham Forest Virtual Culture. Funded by Arts Council England's Great Place Scheme.
