with calligrapher Soroya Syed

Project Overview

YeastCulture collaborated with the award winning calligraphist Soraya Syed on a video installation that brought her calligraphy to life in a gallery setting. ‘Hurriyah’ meaning freedom premiered at London’s Leighton’s House and involved a stop frame animation of Soraya’s calligraphy mixed with live dance choreographed by Akram Khan and music composed by Nitin Sawhney. YeastCulture produced the installation and designed all the video elements.
