About

Artist: Lucid Creates
United Kingdom

Dance Together is part of the 2021 'River of Light' programme. For full details of this year's River of Light, visit the dedicated page.

DANCE TOGETHER is a brand new commission by Culture Liverpool that brings together artistic studio Lucid Creates with Chibuku to mark recently passing the milestone of 20 years of the iconic club night.

This celebration of club culture brings together archive music from some of the most celebrated nights in the Chibuku’s history alongside a collation of anecdotes & memories and brand new poetry created by multimedia artist Suzannah Pettigrew.

A development of TOGETHER, a spectacular touring art installation by Lucid Creates, the result of the partnership between Chris Carr & Helen Swan, TOGETHER is a spectacular touring art installation filled with video, light and sound in which audiences can feel part of an immersive, collaborative experience. Created as a reaction to the isolation of lockdown, the artwork is a huge pavilion-like open space in which communities can come together to celebrate their unity and love in the face of adversity.

The artists collaborate with the communities that host TOGETHER, collating their memories, archives and stories. These words are displayed on the inner face of the three rings, intertwined with mesmeric visuals and accompanied by an ethereal soundscape.
