Earlier this year, HotHouse Company teamed up with Perth artist Darren Hutchens on a special project. Darren was invited to participate in a residency at All Saints’ College where he would create a large scale mural titled ‘Dancing on the Walls’ in the school’s Dance Studio.
Over a term, Darren visited the College and painted the mural at different locations around the campus while engaging with students about his practice and processes in creating the works. This interaction inspired a collaborative project called ‘Drawn to Dance’ between Year 7 Project X Dance and Visual Arts students.
The residency was captured by Darren’s brother, Brendan Hutchens, a local filmmaker, who edited the footage into a short documentary called ‘Art is Movement’. This film was premiered for the first time at the opening of the College’s Art, Media, Design and Technologies’ Exhibition on Friday, 26 October.
