Laura Risk: Scottish and Québécois fiddling.

 

I toured in a duo with percussive dancer Sandy Silva back in the early 2000s. Here are some of my favourite images from those performances.
I love these two sets of photos for the way they capture the dynamic of our show. We used distance and proximity as expressive elements and thought of the lighting as the third member of the ensemble.
