Hidden Spire 2015: exhibition

For the last year, multimedia artist Nicola Armitage has been following the development of Before The Tempest. She's seen script-writing, devising and designing, and was present at the very earliest experimental workshops.

Filmed footage and images come together in her exhibition, Hidden Spire, which opens tonight and runs until 26 September.

An image from the exhibition, taken from the design sessions.

‘From documenting the workshops, I have been inspired by the range of creative processes involved; from the initial sketches and discussions through to movement, expression, light and sound workshops, costume and set design. I have witnessed the ideas generated throughout this time change, develop and gather momentum towards final production.’ - Nicola Armitage

Some images from the design process.
