A Time To Dance

As Christianity attempts to renew itself in an increasingly secular society, ‘A Time To Dance’ examines the emergence of postmodern culture in the British church.  Pentecostalism, a Christian denomination that is growing in the UK adopts pop style music; services are filmed and broadcast live on the internet via the church’s livestream; and churchgoers record and share the presence of God by mobile phone. These spaces of worship often recall the celebratory atmosphere of the dance club, and call upon the visual rhetoric of broader society.

The series also explores the human search for a sense of immersion and catharsis, seeking something bigger than ourselves and a transcendence of the banalities of everyday life.
