The Wire Works – performing and video recording with Bewsey Lodge

Laurence Payot is working with Bewsey Lodge Primary School to create a video inspired by the wire heritage of Warrington.

They will create a wire factory for the future, thinking about how wire can be used to connect but also filter and divide, and imagine a new wire world, more connected and less divided…

Funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, The Wire Works is a Warrington project designed to unearth, discover and celebrate Warrington’s industrial wire heritage through oral histories, creative workshops and large local events.

Below are images of drawings created by the children and projected on black fabric, gauze and body.
