This Easter, Trinity Laban dance lecturer and choreographer Lizzi Kew Ross is coordinating hugely ambitious dance performance projects in two of London’s most important churches.
From 15 to 16 April, the all night Easter Vigil entitled Stations of the Cross takes place at St Stephen Walbrook. Visitors can experience 14 video works by Mark Dean projected onto the Henry Moore altar, culminating in a dance performance A Prelude to Being Here by Lizzi Kew Ross & Co.
Then at 7pm on 26 April, the magnificent dome of St Paul’s Cathedral is the setting for the premiere of Lizzi Kew Ross’s new work Being Here, within Mark Dean’s 12-monitor video and sound installation Here Comes the Sony. The performance takes place in the middle of a circular stage formed by the placement of the television monitors, and combines images of human presence, comfort, hope, loss and regret implicit in the Resurrection stories with the shifting qualities of colour and sound formed by the installation.
Both performances will feature numerous Trinity Laban staff and alumni, including Alice Sara, Sonya Rafferty, Henry Montes, David Waring and Megan Morris.
