Approximating Naiveté

Festival of Ideas, Cambridge University, 2014

Alexandra collaborated with Ernest Dalton, Director and Playwright with 1970’s radical theatre company North West Spanner, to produce a hybrid performance inspired by Nicolas Poussin’s painting Dance to the Music of Time, of 1649.

Against the backdrop of Alexandra’s sculptural interpretation of the cycle of birth, life and death, she and Dalton grappled with Art’s impact on our perception of a past, present and future in our modern lives.
