What have I been up to? Well….
I had a wonderful summer (despite dodging the rain) doing my Selkie project. I went to Cornwall, Ynys Enlli, Tory Island, Donegal and the Isle of Lewis as planned and made work in each location. On Tory I combined my project with workshops for the young people and we made an exhibition for the festival in 10 days.
September brought the news that I had been awarded a scholarship to undertake a practice based PhD in Fine Art at Aberystwyth University. I started late September and am really enjoying the challenge.
As part of my practice I am including my performance and education work.
Paul Davies and I have been awarded further funds to develop “Vesica Piscis” and this month we started work on the next performance, “Skin Deep”
“Skin Deep” is scheduled for showing atRiverfront Arts Centre, Newport on 5th and 6th June 2009. We are performing in the small studio so book early to avoid disappointment!
We are working with Sandra Rosado (dancer) and Pedro Carneiro (musician/composer) from Portugal.
The new work is influenced by my Selkie work and reworks some of the material we explored in “Vesica Piscis” and the film “Tone, Line Colour”.
The next devising period is in April – I will add another update soon.
