Museum of Bath at Work - Site Specific collaboration

Neon Dance were invited by Bath Spa University to takeover the fascinating Museum of Bath at Work for a week this November in order to create a new site specific work. Working with second year Bath Spa dance students, Neon's Adrienne Hart work in collaboration with lighting designer Stuart Bailes, composer Sebastian Reynolds and company dance artist Tilly Webber. Manuals for Living and Dying opened on Friday 11th November and received 3 sold out performances, where audiences were guided around the museum and treated to a re-imaging of the space as envisaged by Neon Dance.

As someone who is very familiar with the spaces it was quite an experience to see the show, which was by turns startling and elegant.
