DEC is an Oxford based group of established musicians, dancers and visual artists, who explore the interactions between their media through improvised performance and video projection.
LUMINOUS SHADOWS shows them in action in a selection of poetic and playful collaborations both structured and spontaneous.
This innovative live creative experience has proved fascinating and engaging
for audiences, with its unpredictability and intimacy in the moment.
Since 2010 DEC has performed in Oxford at the Pegasus Theatre, OVADA
Gallery, The Story Museum and The Old Fire Station, at the Cambridge Festival
of Ideas, and has collaborated with the Oxford Improvisers and poets such as
Vahni Capildeo and Robin Kirkpatrick. DEC artists regularly exhibit their work.
DEC at Cohesion 2011:
“…surprised and utterly delighted me…”
“…produced moments of sheer magic, as lightning brush strokes followed the
fluttering hand movements of a dancer, or a wash of colour flowed across
the backdrop and transformed the setting…”
“…intriguing, absorbing and at times magical evening…”
