17. THEATRE OF LIGHT

DANIEL BELTON & GOOD COMPANY ARTS + STRAWBERRY SOUND

This year Light Nelson invited guest artists – Daniel Belton used to live here, was made an Arts Laureate last year, lives in Dunedin and shows his work widely overseas.

This 20-minute out-door dual projection features two works, Time Dance and Line Dances. The programme is unique to each setting with rebuilds of Time Dance and Line Dances custom mapped for site specific projection, in Nelson they will screen on the west wall of the NMIT library. The work has toured internationally to festival circuits in the UK, Europe, India, Asia and North and South America and with each outing the works are renewed and reworked. Line Dances draws its inspiration from the paintings and drawings of Bauhaus Master, Paul Klee.
