Since May 2015 Stacie has been collaborating with choreographer Bethan Peters to develop Who is the Land, a well-travelled dance and film collaboration that investigates the ever-changing landscapes and coastlines that exist where the land meets the sea.
The project explores ‘hidden gems’ around the UK and observes the cultivation of choreography in these unique places. Taking a sensitive approach to the environment and experiencing the fragile beauty of these varying terrains, the work observes what we take from the land and the traces we leave behind. The locations that feature in the film includes: Gower Peninsula, The Isle of Arran, South coast of Cornwall and Whitby.
The film, which just finished its stint at the National Maritime Museum, London is part of an installation that will include responses from people who reside in and visit the places Stacie and Bethan travelled to.The installation has been developed in conjunction with Bethan’s yearlong choreographic residency at Royal Museums Greenwich, which is centred around the theme of exploration and discovery.
