You See Me Seeing You – June 19th, 2021
This outdoor performance was produced and co-directed by Catherine, and took place in Hackney, London during the London Festival of Architecture 2021. This event was selected by the Festival as “Curators’ Pick”.
The performance utilised movement, dance and light to explore the spectacle of public surveillance and our personal interactions with CCTV cameras in London’s streets. The questions we asked of our audience were: Do security CCTV cameras in London’s streets make us feel safe and protected? Does CCTV surveillance care for us or control us – or both?
The work was performed by Catherine, along with performance artists Mirei Yazawa and Ghost & John, with musicians Sarah Woolfenden and Stephen Arnold.
