the orchestra

The Orchestra was a mixed media installation that invited children to respond to a silent video composition of orchestras. The video focused on the rhythm, melody and emotive qualities of music as seen in the diverse and often hilarious movements of orchestra conductors. Children could put on a bow tie in the dressing room, select a baton or perhaps a gymnastic ribbon and take their position at the lectern. Inspiring serious faces and silly dancing, The Orchestra was a playful piece tapping into children's unrestrained love of movement.
