Leila McMillan: Family Portraits

August 2015

Last year I worked with Leila McMillan to document the R&D of her new work evolving from the Flying Low, Passing Through method. This spring saw the development of this in to an hour long show, and I again got the opportunity to document the R&D process, creating a trailer for the show. The resulting piece, created by the whole creative team explores love, humour, frustration, dysfunction and harmony, with the dancers portraying the complexities of family life.
