Our Future Presentation

New Commission/New Collaboration artists: Mat Fleming and Film Bee
Inspired by: Factory Night @ Wallaw 1930s derelict Cinema, Blyth Northumberland

The film Our Future Presentation is part animation and part dance film. Our Future Presentation will incorporate original photographs and footage shot at the Wallaw as well as period textile patterns reprinted onto film and fragments of footage left behind in the projection booths. Mat is interested in the tragic irony that this disused building, in its architecture and in its use, represents optimism. Mat will explore how Art Deco is a commercial design style which came out of a period of radical social change and from many interesting cultural developments cut brutally short by WWII. The film will celebrate cinema of that era and the progressive future it represented with site specific dance pieces. It will also be inevitably mourn the wasted potential.

This commission is also supported by Blyth Valley Arts and Inspire Northumberland.
