A Crash Course in Cloudspotting (The Subversive act of Horizontality)

Wonderful! We’ve been awarded the Unlimited Commission for 2017! Hooray!

The cloudspotting course will look at the question of etiquette of public spaces; explore chronic pain experience and identity in illness; explore access for invisible disability communities and use pain science to influence modes of listening.

I will be the designer for the piece and very much looking forward to working with Raquel Meseguer as part of the Unchartered Collective and Composer Jamie McCarthy to develop the piece later this year.

Common Land

Common Land is a journey by foot around the UK. Starting in the south west. I am making my kit and costume from landscape – slowly exchanging the everyday international wardrobes for things I’ve made from the landscape. I’m trying to find the British wilderness, staying outdoors, bringing shared foot paths to life and seeing the materials around me in a different way.

I’ve begun working with a Horse, Airmid, and the wonderful Natalie from the Dartmoor Pony and Training Centre to prepare for the journey.

So far it’s become clear that you can plan as much as you like but it’s going to unfold in a different way and with a different pace.

All the Journeys I Never Took

It’s an honour to be working on the design of poet, Rebecca Tantony’s latest spoken word show. We will be teaming up with Lucy English as producer and Director, Raquel Meseguer. The show will be on tour around the UK in 2017. Here is a descriptive taster….

With the cityscape framed, the audience becomes a voyeur to the bustle around. Taking the time to be, to listen, to let our senses roam. A personal story. A story that explores what it is like to leave behind the middle man- lover, father, priest- and discover our place in the world. A space that echoes with unravelling journeys, break ups, first dates, family, confidences. Here we ask the audience to take an active role. Here we mutter poems of love, of loss, of the human. The city provides our actors and backdrop. Here the everyday is elevated.
