Pavilion Dance Exhibition

Pavilion Dance Urban Playground Team Prodigal Theatre Run this Town Bournemouth parkour performance danceI was challenged by the Artistic Producer of Pavilion Dance Bournemouth, Ian Abbott, to make a highly original series of photographs during a two day artists residency there in January. Collaborating with the Urban Playground Team and their unique parkour performance (‘Run this Town’) I further developed a style that I have been working on for a while now. The results are full of impact and dramatic like the performance itself. Ian stated, ‘The innovative effect that Simon has created with his artwork, that brings a 2D parkour image into 3D, is remarkable’.

The work will be on display from the 7th to 21st March coinciding with the UK premiere there.
