You Move Me is a collaboration between a Gemma Riggs (filmmaker), Laura Murphy (choreographer) and Melanie Wilson (sound artist). We have worked with people from two towns: Northampton, UK and Zagare, Lithuania.   

The work explores collective and individual identities and how we occupy our domestic settings.  

The result is tableau of video portraits of numerous people in their own home, all performing the same, unified, collaboratively-made choreography. Their movements are unified, yet their individual presence is utterly distinctive. It becomes a collaborative chorus of movement and presence. It engages in the notion of synecdoche, where bringing together multiples of the same in turn brings out the unique character of each.

This work was funded by Arts Council England.


You Move Me will be exhibited twice in 2018:

January 2018:
Herbert Read Gallery, Canterbury

June 2018: NN Contemporary, Northampton
