Jack Philp Dance began creating LUMEN in 2017 with our first residency taking place at Chapter Arts Centre. Our final stage of research and development takes place between October and November 2017 at Rubicon Dance before open sharings hosted by The University of South Wales. LUMEN explores the science behind light in our universe, fusing astrophysical research with dance and music to inspire artistic outcomes. The work has been stimulated by research, theories and journals provided by academic collaborators and professors from The School of Physics and Astronomy at Cardiff University.




LUMEN is being generously supported by Arts Council of Wales, Chapter Arts Centre and Rubicon Dance. We would also like to thank Cardiff University for their support and expertise.

Cefnogwyd LUMEN yn hael gan Cyngor Celfeddydau Cymru, Canolfan Celfeddydau Chapter, a Rubicon Dance. Diolch hefyd i Brifysgol Caerdydd am eu cefnogaeth a’u arbenigedd.
