A performance by participants of the Moving Through Time project.
Responding to the National Portrait Gallery’s Tudor exhibition, Elizabeth I and her People, a group of young people working with choreographer Vanessa Cook applied a contemporary perspective to the exhibition; generating movement based on details taken from the paintings, such as the posture of the subjects, the objects they chose to be painted with and the relationship between the foreground and background.
The work was performed in the Tudor galleries at The National Portrait Gallery.
