Stitching communal needlework with vertical dance.

Quilting Buildings, Building Communities

We are so excited to be working on an aerial dance theatre collaboration between Quilt ClubGravity & Levity, and Scarabeus.
Our recent research and development was on a jaw-dropping triptych patchwork quilt, created by The Quilt Club.

Our vision is to wrap a building or façade with a huge patchwork quilt created with local communities, which a team of aerialists will animate.

Alongside the quilt making, Gravity & Levity and Scarabeus will be offering aerial and vertical dance workshops for participants of all ages and abilities to also experience this aspect of the collaboration.

The project aims to offer an immersive visual and aural experience to residents, accidental passers-by and a gathered audience. It sparks joy, curiosity, pride, a sense of ownership and leaves a legacy in the area that will live in people’s heart and memory.
