“Lifelines is the second of three visual arts commissioning projects, celebrating and making visible the work of the Kingfisher Project, a major writing in health-care project supported by Arts Council England.
Laurence Rushby has created a site-specific installation at Salisbury Arts Centre in response to the brief, using a lifeline of red ribbon to link a multitude of personal stories to the architecture of the building.
Lifeline is a striking and thought-provoking new commission celebrating the importance of art for health and wellbeing”.
I invited 4 professional dancers to experiment and create movements around the line; Dr Olu Taiwo, Rebecca Seymour, Debbie Lee Anthony and Michael Mitchell responded beautifully over an afternoon of research which could lead to further performance project.
