AND IN THE SOIL, THERE BE MIRRORS is a site-responsive dance film by Hollie Miller and Sam Williams set across a selection of historical locations in the English landscape. The work responds not only to the architecture and former life of these sites but also counteracts a heritage version of the landscape with a Gothic and mythological vision. A series of figures whose traits are drawn from nature and English folklore inhabit the site, possessing a sense of the uncanny and discarding the pastoral, nostalgic images of the countryside that people hold on to.
