The Memory Project

Frost Bites Festival 2016, Hamilton

The Memory Project is a collectively devised, site specific performance installation. Guided by the theme of memory and conceived in situ, the piece fuses movement, sound & video. Original choreography, audio field recordings, and documentary film technique repopulate the space in order to connect with its industrial past. Staged on 3 floors (& and within a freight elevator) of the 100 year old historic Cotton Factory building in Hamilton's Industrial sector.

Devised, Created & Performed by

Peter Riddihough
(videography, projection & lighting design)
