The Machinery at Cromford Mill

An immersive sound and video installation, which captures the earliest known machine dance. Performed by Caroline Radcliffe and captured by filmmaker Jon Harrison, the dance is augmented with the sounds and movements of the Industrial Revolution’s textile industries by composer and digital artist Sarah Angliss, and Caroline Radcliffe. The piece mixes dance steps with music and video to reflect the conditions of the women millworkers’ repetitive labour and the human/automaton relationship created by the Industrial Revolution.
