We have transformed the windows of the Sports Traider shop on Silver Street into an art gallery.

Images taken by Mickael Marso Riviere and performed by street dancer Si Rawlinson and a troupe of young dancers from Bedford provide a new perspective on the well-known Silver Faces sculpture situated opposite the shop.

Born in France, Marso has been based in the UK for over 12 years.  He is well established in both contemporary dance and the bboy dance world.  He runs his own dance company “Company Decalage” and has been commissioned to create dance pieces for BBC Proms and the Queen’s Jubilee.

The images will remain on display for the next two weeks.

This artwork is a result of a ‘Mini-commission’ by Bedford Creative Arts, which are small funds granted for new and innovative artworks. The next deadline for mini commission applications is on the 30th May and application forms can be downloaded from here.
