Liminality is a partnership between Chapter’s dance programme Coreo Cymru, multimedia company 4Pi Productions and The Dance worx India. The project supports the creation of a new 360° Fulldome dance film co-choreographed by Wales-based dance artists Kim Noble and Hugh Stanier and directed by 4Pi Productions. It includes a cast of over 30 contemporary dancers from India and Wales and a new sound score created by internationally-renowned musician Grey Filastine.

This piece explores the juxtaposition between spirituality and industry, and will highlight the similarities between India and Wales and the evolving relationship between the two countries. It is being filmed at coastal and urban locations in South Wales, Delhi and Goa, to create a short immersive 360° experience of the contemporary dance aesthetic. 

In July 2017, two Indian contemporary dancers from Danceworx Manas and Devasmita came to Wales for a rehearsal with Welsh contemporary dancers, they filmed in locations in South Wales including the National Assembly for Wales, Trevilis Bay, Newport Transporter Bridge and the Cardiff Bay barrage. 

The project goes to India in November 2017 to continue filming on locations in Delhi and Goa. 

The Liminality 360º film will be available to view from April 2018 onwards, through online virtual reality platforms, and will be screened at venues throughout India and within the Dance Dome 360º mobile cinema in venues across Wales and various other countries (to be confirmed).

This project is part of India Wales, a joint initiative between Wales Arts International and the British Council that supports artistic collaboration and exchange between creative professionals and arts organisations in Wales and India. Find out more about India Wales
