About the Project

A tapestry of dance, movement, singing, music, words and film inspired by the magic of trees, lakes, the sea and the moon.

SpiralArts are currently developing this project as a performance piece called ‘Spellbound‘, the ideas for which started in Lockdown and the realisation of the importance of nature to us all.

As well as the ongoing exploration and development of effective integration of diverse art forms and range of ages, we are now starting to work with a film artist to integrate live performance with film.

Through this project we intend to find ways to make this performance an immersive experience for the audience.

We are aiming to show this work on 6th September at Open Ealing Arts, and are currently looking for funding for this project.

Funding

Currently we are looking for funding to make a film of this project, which will ultimately be integrated with live performance.
