Step is a film work that has been made in collaboration with choreographer Laura Murphy (IE). The film grew out of a series of research residencies in European cities that sparked interdisciplinary working. It was filmed in the grounds of Ceauçescu’s Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest, Romania and uses the stark marble of the controversial building to frame the moving body.
Step has been screened at the Whitstable Biennial 2014 and Coastal Currents Festival 2013, Tipperary Dance Platform 2013 and was part of Unfold, an exhibition at Cork Film Centre.
