In 2010 Leen Dewilde started destroying things, smashing cups, breaking down walls cutting up furniture and sawing the legs off chairs...
A String Section started as one of these works, a simple set of 5 chairs, 5 women and 5 saws. A project where, the production of sawdust, the leftover legs, the half broken chairs, the residue of the action was as important as the action itself.
For 3 days in July Reckless Sleepers will return to Brighton and work together with 22 women to create a new larger scale site-specific adaptation of A String Section for Brighton’s Circus Street Market. Commissioned by South East Dance for Big Dance 2014.
