Black Rock is a digital performance that explores the extraordinary desire of humans to move through mountains, to scale vertical walls and to seek new physical and intellectual heights.

The project climbs from two of Johnny Dawes’ first ascents in Snowdonia, to wider concepts of risk, vertigo, adventure, partnership and the physical boundaries between body and rock.
