International arts organisation IOU is bringing its most recent work Fulcrum to volunteer-led community cinema The New Picture House, Dewsbury at the end of March.
IOUâ€™s Fulcrum is a non-stop-motion animation film made before your eyes. Using robotics, intricately carved miniatures and mysteriously complex technology, we join a woman on a train journey through northern moors and towns as she imagines a world transformed.
In the small cinema room you can see the little scenes the robotic machines are videoing projected liveÂ onto the big screen.Â Here an animated story unfolds – accompanied by the floatingÂ sounds of a strummed guitar.
Fulcrum is open to the public on Friday 27 March, 7 â€“ 9pm and Saturday 28 March, 9am â€“ 5pm; with schools workshops taking place from Wednesday 25 March. A VIP launch event takes place on Thursday 26 March, 5 â€“ 7pm.
The installation is free and takes place over a weekend that also sees Creative Scene events take place at Dewsbury Train Station with film project Ticket to Ride and Batley Train Station with outdoor game Bingo Balls.
Friday 27Â March, 7 â€“ 9pm & Saturday 28 March, 9am â€“ 5pm
