Heath Spark
Heath Park Housing Estate
Dagenham, Essex 2015

An exhibition and outdoor performance, a culmination of a 6-month residency bringing arts into the borough. Created with residents and with composer Isa Suarez. Heath Spark investigated our attachments to place and our longing for escape through parkour, freerunning, song, drumming and fire.

Commissioned by Creative Barking & Dagenham as part of Arts Council People & Places Fund 2015.

Repurosing an empty retail unit on the estate and as a community arts venue.
