Land into Light (2012)
Commissioned by Hastings Borough Council for Stade Saturdays as part of Big Dance 2012. Land into Light is a response to Gary Hume’s ‘flashback’ exhibition, the new Jerwood Gallery, and Hastings.
We make for the door, all Four Doors
And walk towards the sea
We come into the light.
Allow the ground to rise up and take us
As we re-stack our centres
the earth meets the sky
touching through us.
Our bodies, the imprint of our histories
of all the times we met the ground
and the sky and left the room
in search of the sea.
My Aunt and I agree.
Devised and performed by Charlotte Spencer and Jennifer-Lynn Crawford
