More Sky Than We Need
Following on from the hugely popular Shoogle Project, plan B toured in Autumn 2013 with More Sky Than We Need - a beautiful and serene meditation on the vast clouds above us and the immense space within us. Taking inspiration from The Cloud by Percy Bysshe Shelley and from choreographer Frank McConnell's own contemplations, the piece is reflective and breath-taking, exploring how the natural wonders above dictate our moods, thoughts and actions.
Performed by Chrissie Ardill, Lucy Boyes and Emma Snellgrove. Accompanied throughout by live music and a specially commissioned soundscape from Lila Senior, the piece is completed by a magical, layered design by Miranda Melville.
Preceding the performance plan B screened their 13 minute dance film Away From Here. Set in the dramatic West Highlands of Scotland, Away From Here examines the fleeting relationship of people to a sense of place and belonging; exploring the incongruity of our relationship to an ancient landscape. A collaboration between plan B and multi-award winning Goat Media , the film has been screened over 15 times at various festivals in both the UK and around the world.
