|First On The Heel
|Liverpool Improvisation Collective & Tommy Husband
|OUTPUT is proud to present
a new filmed collaboration between director Tommy Husband &
Liverpool Improvisation Collective. The film First on the heel
documents an off-the-cuff exploration of various spaces within The
Bridewell, a studio / gallery complex built as a police station in
1846. Through dance and fragmented dialogue, the film investigates
different possibilities of bodies within spaces, keying in to legacies
of play and performance.
Liverpool Improvisation Collective (LIC)
is a dance artist organisation founded in 1999, led by Mary Prestidge,
Andrea Buckley and Paula Hampson. In 2009, LIC founded a designated
dance research studio at Bluecoat Contemporary Arts Centre. A new phase
of creative projects began supported in part by Liverpool City Council,
Merseyside Dance Initiative, NorthWest dance agencies, and Arts Council
England. The studio is an artist-led dance space used for research,
rehearsal, workshops and performance. It provides a vital context and
resource for artists to share their work. LIC have produced an
extensive programme of training and performance opportunities to
support their own artistic development and that of the wider community.
is a writer, director, filmmaker and musician. His recent focus on
music videos has seen him working with Stealing Sheep & Ex-Easter
Island Head among others. The handheld, improvised and balletic nature
of his camerawork has led to multiple collaborations with dancers,
including 2022’s OUTPUT project Unease with dancer Aline Costa.
