A structured improvisation in response to Hockneyʼs autobiography of the same title - Hockney's thoughts on photography and drawing somehow seemed transferable to movement, choreography and the body. His concepts of time and space, his artistic interests and work are the foundation of this piece.
ʻWe canʼt all be seeing the same things; we are all seeing something a bit differentʼ. D. Hockney
Chris Butler and Simon Connor of We Are Willow, using quotes from Hockney's book as inspiration, produced an original sound score to accompany the choreography. http://www.wearewillow.com/
