Façades/Fronts is a commission for Look Again Visual Art & Design Festival in partnership with Citymoves Dancy Agency that takes the ‘Year of Young People’ as a starting point and draws upon the architecture of Aberdeen, using the façade as a metaphor to explore the forming of one's own identity, particularly as a woman. A group of young women will perform a perambulatory work together, placing their bodies in contrast to the imposing granite facades that have historically housed patriarchal civic activity. The work will be based in the city centre (beginning at The Anatomy Rooms).
