A reflection on how bodies practice places and how these processes might be part of experiencing and re-imagining a village…


The village dance

Simon talks about a current preoccupation with the realm of social ecology, on how people might practice home, make sense of their environment and interact together.

Movement artist Simon Whitehead works from his base in rural West Wales and internationally. He has developed a body of work from the pedestrian. Encountering situations at walking pace his works are place sensitive and often involve a process of ritual reconstruction through the body, live performance, sound and sensory media.
