Circus Between Worlds - workshop #1

I am delighted to announce that the proposal I submitted for The Circus Between Worlds project has been accepted. The project is part of Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art 2016 and is led by Neil Bromwich and Zoe Walker. It will take place in the ruined shell of the Alexander 'Greek’ Thompson Church on Caledonia Road Glasgow. A variety of international artists and students from Newcastle University, Glasgow School of Art, Edinburgh College of Art and Strathclyde University will present work as part of this ambitious off site-project.

Today I met with the five other students from Newcastle University that have been selected to present work. After discussing some practical issues with Neil and Zoe, we tested out some ideas in relation to my proposal. This work is performance based, and involves multiple performers. It was great to have a group of people willing to work with me to try out different ideas. I am excited about working in this way with each other to help foster a supportive critical network, and am looking forward to our session next week.

Here we are making different balancing poses in pairs.
