Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre, in partnership with King's College London commissioned choreographer and director Luke Murphy to create a dance film responding to, and inspired by, his 2019 gallery work Carnivore. This project was supported by an Arts Council Commission Award. The resulting collaboration between Murphy and filmmaker Pato Cassinoni explores the work of King's College's Renaissance Skin Project, and what touch, contact, and physical identity meant in a rapidly changing world.
Written on Skin will be screened alongside a curated programme of dance film works including Cualquier Mañana by Laura Aris and Landfall by Kate Weare. Luke Murphy is Uillinn: West Cork Dance Artist in Residence 2021-2022 supported by the Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon and Cork County Council
