Cascades is a participatory ‘ballet’ for urban spaces. The audience are led through a series of interactive digital scores projection mapped into a public space. This engenders spontaneous movement and performance, and as each score changes so the dynamics and sound shape choreography. In Cascades we want to question how we use our urban spaces, how we look at them, feel about them and how we move within them.

And other evolutions of the work included a version created for BBC Livesites and can be found elsewhere on the Mercurial Dance Website

Casacdes | Coda is a reworking of Cascades, reinstalled in our emptyshops studio the Bubble Chamber including an augmented sound score by Andrew Kristy. Here are a series of stills from the project
