MOVING CITIES EXHIBITION COMES TO THE BRIDGES

AN exciting photographic exhibition featuring local dancers in iconic North East locations is heading to Sunderland this autumn.

Moving Cities North East, a collection of unique images depicting some of the region’s most famous landmarks as a backdrop to movement action, is heading to the Bridges this October and November.

Renowned photographer Jevan Chowdhury enlisted 12 dancers from across the North East and spent three days at some of the most popular landmarks creating his images.

Dancers can be seen leaping and spinning down alleys, markets, streets and some of the region’s lesser known spots including Sunderland’s own Frederick Street, Newcastle’s Grainger Market, Alnwick  Garden and North Shields Fish Quay.

The exhibition was put together by North East dance production company Moving Art Management, and follows the success of Jevan’s multi-award winning Moving Cities project in cities like Paris, Dallas, Athens and Brussels.

It has already enjoyed a mini-tour of the region, visiting Dance City and Alnwick Playhouse, and now it is heading to Sunderland for a week beginning Monday 23 October 2017, where a selection of the images will be on show.

The images will be displayed in various poster sites around the centre.
