Light Art ActionINSPIRED by local sculpture and music from emerging composers (Alumi from University of Hertfordshire and students from Hertfordshire College of music) dancers, artists and theatre designers join together to transform the Gibberd Gallery into a magical set.

The exhibition runs from Thursday February 19th until Friday March 31st.

This exhibition will be packed with live dance performances inspired by the sculpture collection with commissioned music pieces, plus films of dance in the gallery. The gallery walls have been used as a canvas for Harlow College Art and Design students to create a mural depicting all styles of dance.

Six theatre designers will be showcased each is a member of The Society of British Theatre Designers. The display in the Gibberd Gallery has been adapted from their recent show ‘Make:Believe’ at Nottingham Trent University. This includes working theatre set models, costume, photographs and films of live theatre performances.

• Bob Crowley
• Simon Daw
• Matt Deely
• Shizuka Hariu
• Kimie Nakano
• Antonella Petraccaro
