Towards the Embrace: Movement and Communication
This public art event was a collaboration between sculptor Bonnie Kemske, dancer/choreographer Adèle Thompson, and the Queens College Contemporary Dance Society, Cambridge University. It occurred on October 28, 2009 as part of the Cambridge Festival of Ideas at the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. The sculptures are Cast Hugs and the dancers responded to the brief of touch, the body, and the embrace, developing movement strategies to interact with the artworks and then inviting the public to do the same. With thanks to Hilary Goodall for the filming and creation of this video.
