Leyla was extremely excited to be awarded some LABTIME funding from the National Centre of Circus Arts in London. She had written an application to make a art film and was awarded 4 days of space in The Creation Studio in Hoxton. She worked with Ella Robson Guilfoyle to bring her concepts into a reality through movement. They worked together to choreograph Leyla in a solo piece with movement on the floor and on a single aerial hoop. It was a fantastic opportunity for Leyla to get back into her practice of working in a processed and layered way, drawing on her training at Central St Martin's School of Art and Design. Leyla also worked with Fionn Guilfoyle who filmed the entire piece. The piece is currently in edit now, and without giving away any of the concepts here is a tiny piece of behind the scenes footage.
