Bill Wroath and Jules Laville: Collaborative History

Jules and Bill have worked together a good deal on contemporary dance commissions with Jules in the role of choreographer and Bill as filmmaker. Projects have included Bloodthirsty, Liquid Human and Time to Dance.

Some of these have been Sci-art collaborations such as the 2006 collaboration with Peter Smithers of Plymouth University, where the subject of bugs was interpreted through dance, film and music. Bill’s contribution was a series of projections that gave an insight into the biological world on a small scale.

In one collaboration World View, Bill and Jules were experimenting with live camera feeds from above, with aerial views of the dancers projected back onto the dancers and on the back wall of the stage.
