Bridge (2007)

A site-specific visual performance on 2 sites; Leeds College of Art & Design’s bridge on Percival Street, Leeds and Henry Moore Institute’s Library, as part of Situation Leeds, 2007.

In Bridge, Sarah Spanton asks questions about human communication in the 21st Century. A slow-moving improvised duet without verbal communication, which is observed at a distance from the street below and also close up and in detail via live video feed from the second site on a computer screen.

‘I think it challenges human communication in a beautiful way that is both enjoyable and maybe confrontational/difficult for the viewer.’
