Part of the Peopling the Palace(s) 2023 collection

Hosted by School of English and Drama, QMUL

This special screening celebrates Rosemary Lee’s unique contribution to dance filmmaking over the last thirty years, and her status as one of the UK’s most original and innovative choreographers. As with her live works, Lee’s choreographies for film revel in and reveal human movement as part of the environment, be that rural, natural or urban. Drawing on a substantial body of work, this special screening will present a selection of collaboratively made films that focus on this interconnectedness of the human and the environment including acclaimed works such as boy (Anderson/Lee1995), Snow (Hinton/Lee), and Liquid Gold is the Air (Chesher/Lee 2015).

The screening will include a short introduction by Rosemary Lee and Martin Welton, Professor of Theatre and Performance at QMUL, reflecting on sensory ecologies and care in Lee’s work.

The screening will be followed by refreshments and an opportunity to talk to the artist.

During the refreshments, there are opportunities to view Liquid Gold is the Air at your leisure.

Please feel free to contact QMUL with any questions or requirements regarding accessibility or general queries
