Put On Your Red Shoes

‘Put On Your Red Shoes’ was an interactive installation for ‘Constructing the Self: David Bowie’ which was a show celebrating the life and work of David Bowie. The show was led by the Black Hole Club, of which i am a member, for Vivid Projects in June 2016 and also served as a fundraiser for Cancer Research UK.

David Bowie’s constant re-creation of his onstage identity is something i share, using costume and personas to re-create myself in my performance work. This was an invitation to dance, in a communal celebration of the man who raised the bar, and brought true strangeness and experimentation into the mainstream in a way few ever achieve. 150 pairs of red shoes were available to dance in.

Thanks to Birmingham Opera Company and friends for the loan of shoes.
