I’ve been having a wonderful time over the last few months as one of a group of cross-arts practitioners developing a new show inspired by vintage film.
The project is led by Shropshire-based arts organisation MediaActive, who work with local people, organisations and creative practitioners to co-design and produce an innovative programme of special projects, commissions, events and exhibitions.
Our project EBB AND FLOW, seeks to embrace contemporary practice and the creative use of technology by exploring responses to archive film through music, dance and poetry. My brilliant collaborators on this project are musician Andy Lowe, dancer Rachel Liggett, poet and all-round creative Ellen Purce, and of course Sue Gainsborough and Richard Hepenstal from MediaActive, who hold it all together.
As it turned out, it all got rather watery… Here’s some photos from a recent rehearsal.
Save Friday 17 March in your diaries and come along!
