Suspended Motion (UK 2020, 3min). Suspended Motion shares an exchange of movements and sensations responding to touch, light and sound. This is explored in the relationship between complex disabled (deafblind) dancers, leading non-disabled dancers in an environment that travels through a space using the senses. The original music score was created by artist Justin Wiggan and features vocalisations by deaf/blind vocalist Sarah N’Diritu.
