The film, Looking Down, was part of a commission with Poplar Union’s Outside in Arts Festival in Summer 2020. The Festival shared responses from a range of artists to the pandemic situation and was titled; Looking Out, Looking In, Looking Up…

The piece is made in collaboration with the dancers of the Dancing with Parkinson’s Programme. Danielle worked with the dancers over the summer of 2020 and collected images, film and words that express the lived experience of COVID-19 lockdown from perspectives of people with Parkinson’s. In addition, a gallery of images and words by the dancers is available alongside this film and can be found earlier on the blog.
