A commissioned 4-screen work 'Gravity Zero' by choreographer Kitsou Dubois shown at the Lux Centre

Kitsou Dubois was the first artist to work in weightlessness, having worked with astronauts of the French Space Agency to develop a training protocol based on dance techniques. She and dancers from her company then took part in a series of parabolic ‘weightless’ flights. The extraordinary footage emerging from these flights of dance in zero gravity was shown as a video installation commissioned by The Arts Catalyst for six weeks in March and April 1999, as a night-time projection across the windows of the Lux Centre in Hoxton Square.
 
Videos of Kitsou's zero gravity dance were also screened at the 291 gallery at an event following the opening at the Lux Centre.
 
Kitsou Dubois took part in a discussion with Dr Chris Welch in front of an audience at the Lux Cinema, mediated by Rob La Frenais.
