Libby knows a thing or two about telling stories using movement and spectacle. As a professional dancer and choreographer in the West End and on tour before moving into production and event management she has worked all over the world on major events including the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Family Festival in Hyde Park and more recently Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival and founded the immensely successful Light Up Poole Festival that brought over 54,000 to Dorset over three-nights. In 2019 she was awarded ‘Outstanding Contribution to Tourism at the Dorset Tourism Awards’ and Light Up Poole was shortlisted for ‘Best Creative Lighting Event’ at (d)arc awards 2019.
Fascinated by the power of light art to cross genres and incorporate other art forms to build a narrative, Libby is drawing on her experience to create site-specific Light Up Trails that complement and enhance the landscapes and communities in which they are set.
Light art is powered by collaboration – artists working with technologists, engineers and academics to tell human stories in new ways – and Libby works with artists that understand the power of engagement, of reaching out to the audience with work that touches them emotionally and spiritually as well as visually.
