Abstract

Motionhouse launched its newly commissioned large-scale outdoor show Fragile in Glasgow on 25 & 26 July to be seen again on 29 & 30 August in Canterbury ay bOing! Festival. This family-friendly outdoor show is a dramatic performance of agility, precision and strength, with an original soundtrack by Sophy Smith and Tim Dickinson. The show features Motionhouse dancers who were joined by a team of highly skilled JBC operators, Motionhouse apprentices and a group of local emerging artists from Glasgow. Fragile is co-commissioned by Conflux, Merchant City Festival and Gulbenkian, University of Kent, with support from Creative Scotland, Glasgow City Council, Arts Council England and sponsored by Scot JCB and AB 2000. The newly created work builds on Motionhouse’s previous innovation between dancers and the JCB machines.
