Here are some more images from our recent initial devising process on the performance “Skin Deep”. You can see the performance at Riverfront Arts Centre, Newport on 5th and 6th June 2009 – book early, we are in the small studio and tickets are limited!
We are weaving the work we created in“Vesica Piscis” with new material collected during my Selkie project, “Shedding Skins” to create “Skin Deep”
I am working with technologies to develop a new method of performance drawing. Early experiments are exciting and the integration of the arts is now more possible than ever before. I am primarily a “drawer” and am still committed to the hand drawn image, however, introducing a projection tool is altering and influencing the way I draw. I am intrigued to see how this develops and am considering the possibilities for how we may teach drawing in the future. I will be delivering a masterclass to young and gifted artists soon where I will try out some new ideas.
In addition the dancers are experimenting with how markmaking alters their movements and choreography. We are looking forward to the next phase when Pedro Carneiro joins us. He will be developing a sound scape with new interactive sound technologies. This will have another impact on the work.
