Following the premiere in Australia this summer, The Running Tongue will screen as part of Light Moves festival of screendance in Limerick, Ireland.

The Running Tongue is a new film installation work by Siobhan Davies and David Hinton. Made in collaboration with sound artists, animators and 22 dance artists, footage of a running woman is played continuously in a loop, freezing at random intervals to reveal selected frames treated by each of the artists. Combining collage, repetition, static and moving image, the frozen frames unveil a scene embedded in reality, with fleeting moments of strange, surreal and visually poetic activity.

Imagery devised by the following dance artists:

Gaby Agis, Frank Bock, Seke Chimutengwende, Katye Coe, Nicola Conibere, Siobhan Davies, Robin Dingemans, Simon Ellis, Fred Gehrig, Alexandrina Hemsley, Wendy Houstoun, Annie Lok, Henry Montes, Charlie Morrissey, Freddie Opoku-Addaie, Florence Peake, Lauren Potter, Efrosini Protopapa, Deborah Saxon, Eleanor Sikorski, Matthias Sperling, Alexander Whitley

As part of the festival Siobhan Davies is giving a talk on 21 November, 2pm–3pm.
