Overworlds and Underworlds

Leeds Canvas


Over three days in May 2012 the city of Leeds became the canvas for a remarkable multi-location event curated by internationally acclaimed artist-filmmakers The Quay Brothers.

Overworlds & Underworlds was created by The Quays with composer Gavin Bryars and choreographers Gary Clarke, Douglas Thorpe, Daniel De Andrade (Northern Ballet Theatre), Rachel Krische and VDT’s Artistic Director Charlotte Vincent, who made a new work with Phoenix Dance Theatre especially for this event.

Overworlds and Underworlds included live dance performance, installations, films, sculptures, music and song. Highlights from the event can be seen on The Space.
