Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
This short film is made from a dancing choreographer's perspective and documents some of the creative processes that Senior Lecturers Michelle Man and James Hewison undertook to make 'Imaginarium', during their artistic residency at Crookhey Hall. The short film draws attention to the feltness of the architecture that the chreographers played with at Leonora Carrington's childhood home near the Lancashire coast. This unique opportunity explore choreographically this Gothic mansion, that undoubtedly left its mark on the artist's psyche, was key to the development of 'Imagiarium'.
