Performed for ‘Till It Breaksat Greatmore Events Space, September 2013
An experiment in collaboration and its benefits and pitfalls, the costume is a circle of sky-blue cloth marked in obscure drawings and embroidered with black scribbles. This is encircled by a series of 7 hooded cloaks, worn by 7 participants. The performance is improvised as an intuitive dance, with 6 others to ‘have your back’.
work entirely from found natural materials bamboo, palm, sisal, shells…
Detail of the ‘Hungry Monster’, part of my ‘Circle of Life’ - forms chasing one another in a feeding frenzy. The messages on the bamboo strips were written by visitors on the Open Days.
This public art project was supported by the Festival, and involved artists, performers, children, students and the general public in drawing sessions and conversation, culminating in a space jam-packed with portraits.
The space gradually filled with drawings, hung like show posters from strings. Participants of all kinds were drawn together to collaborate, communicate and share skills.
