Windrush with Phoenix Dance Theatre

Working in collaboration with Oli Bentley at Split in Leeds we shot the campaign images for Windrush : Movement of the People .

In Oli’s word’s :

Marking the 70th anniversary of the arrival of the SS Empire Windrush, the ship that brought the first large group of immigrants from the Caribbean to the UK, Windrush: Movement of the People is a major new dance piece by Phoenix Dance Theatre, choreographed by Sharon Watson.
We were thrilled to be asked to create the design for the campaign for this timely work. Reflecting the references to fashion and culture throughout Sharon’s choreography, the campaign design takes inspiration from the wallpaper patterns of the time, taking us from Caribbean homes of the 50s, to the living rooms of the UK
