AboutBilly Cowie - Artist talk
Saturday 16 May 09, 3pm
Venue: Lighthouse, 28 Kensington Street, Brighton BN1 4AJ
Come join us for an afternoon of discussion and presentation by award-winning filmmaker, choreographer, composer and author Billy Cowie. Lighthouse has recently commissioned Cowie to premiere his latest 3-D dance film, Ghosts in the Machine, in partnership with the newly curated Artist Open Houses' HOUSE Festival.
On Saturday 16 May, Cowie will be discussing his impressive body of work in the area of screen dance and installation. He has made over twenty live performance pieces, in collaboration with Liz Aggiss for the company Divas Dance Theatre, and has completed five major screen projects for the BBC, Arts Council England and Channel 4.
Cowie's previous screen-based installations, including In the Flesh and The Revery Alone, have received critical acclaim for their winning combination of impressive 3-D technology and highly original dance choreography and have been screened in galleries and venues all over the world.
His newest screen installation, Ghosts in the Machine, follows this combination of stereoscopic filmmaking with inventive dance choreography to create an immersive and unique 3-D experience. Shown within a screening room built in the Lighthouse Gallery, this twenty-five minute looped film promises to be a uniquely entertaining experience.
