Video: Dance inspired by machinery at the Museum of Bath at Work

This is a fantastic example of an event devised specifically for Museums at Night, allowing visitors to discover a collection in a very different light. Sally Lewis from the Museum of Bath at Work wrote this blog post explaining how her son, a dance student, had been inspired by the moving machinery on display and would be creating a performance loosely based on it.

Now the dancers have shared a video of their performance – and we think it’s a brilliant example of what can be achieved when passionate, creative people engage with arts and heritage venues and collections.

If anyone else has experience of inviting actors, dancers, artists or musicians into their venue to create new site-specific work, we’d love to hear about it and showcase your experiences here on the blog.

What I look for in guest posts:

1) 200-350 words, in a chatty, friendly, style

2) A couple of photos of visitors exploring your venue, ideally at night, with the photographer’s credit. We always like to put up photos of people having fun at cultural / heritage venues!

3) A couple of lines about yourself, I’m happy to link to your website / Twitter account / LinkedIn profile etc.

4) A thumbnail-sized photo of you

If you’re interested, please drop me a line at or give me a call on 01273 623336. I look forward to hearing from you!
