‘Look’ was a commission from the Liberty Festival, the biggest free disability arts festival in Europe, which in 2009 was still happening in Trafalgar Square. We devised a piece working with Big 30 interviewees Catherine Long and Danny Smith as well as choreographer Fiona Findlay which was all about the ’gaze’.

It was playing with the idea of people being stared at and we flipped things around with our dancers being dressed with small mirrors and having eyes in their hands so they were turning their gaze back on the audience. 60 dancers comprising artists and participants at Heart n Soul performed the piece on the steps outside the National Gallery and in front of Nelson’s column.

The Fish Police wrote a song for the piece called ‘Expandable’.
