Davy and Kristin McGuire, 2021
Multi-award winning digital artists, the McGuires, have been stunning international audiences with their captivating mix of film, projection and multi-media installations. This year they invited us to develop underwater imagery for their exciting new installation, which will see mermaids projected into the waters at Hull Docks. Having been a fan for a few years, it was a great chance to spend time in their world and facilitate their current vision.
Shobana Jayasingh CBE is an internationally recognised and multi-award winning choreographer. We have had the pleasure working with Shobana since 2007 producing archive, marketing and educational material. During the first lock down in 2020, we delivered the "SJD Shorts” an online season of specially curated, digital dance events which were enjoyed by over a million viewers keeping arts alive in the UK as well as connecting the company to a new global audience. We are currently working on Shobana’s upcoming work, Clorinda Agonistes.
