Eyes as Big as Plates – Leeds (UK)

Hosted by Yorkshire Dance and the Juncture Festival, Eyes as Big as Plates is working its ways through the Yorkshire moors this week. (The curator of the festival, Wendy Houston just made two front row members to her fan club!)

We started with a bang at the Tetley Brewery meeting the local stars and continued to the Ilkley Moors for location hunting with the wonderful Grace Surman. After a very short walk in the hills we concluded that the locals in Yorkshire are in seriously good shape. We have an incredible team of people working on making Eyes as Big as Plates happen here and we are all geared up for the first shoot at 6 am tomorrow morning with Stephen and heather – the material.
