On The Wire is an arts platform; a film screening, live performances with an exhibition of photography and fine art. At its’ heart is a passion for creating an inspiring and celebratory evening of professional and emerging artist’s work driven by lead artist Emily, produced with a team of locally based dancers and visual artists.
Contributing artist’s have included Angela Praed, Belinda Whiting, John Trigg, Steve Tanner, Melanie Young, Cscape Dance, Kevin Clifford, Mark Jenkin, Brett Harvey, Mark Parry, Ian Bucknole and Charlotte Eatock.
In 2012 On The Wire commissioned photographer Steve Tanner to work with Cornwall based dancers Grace Sellwood and Robert Mennear and Emily to create an exhibition of images for the gallery. The first Creative Exchange event was also introduced, a day long event with invited dancers and visual artistis sharing a studio. Improvised movement generated sketches and inspiration for artwork to be created for the final exhibition.
On The Wire is delivered in partnership with Cornwall Film Festival and Freefall Dance, supported by The Works with funding from FEAST and IdeasTap.
