In the background, we're still busily working away on projects and hammering out all the data we collected in various forms from CTW2012 - however we're also working on a small installation that is part of Junction Festival happening in Wolverhampton this weekend... no spoilers as such, as we're not hugely sure our strange ambitions will work as we've imagined - but here are two sneaky peeks, and we're not saying how these two are linked yet!
We've finally unpacked the car from our incredible week in Manchester at Contact, working at Contacting the World 2012 - an international youth theatre festival. It was incredible, and our brains have been stretched beyond all recognition - though workshops and performances and discussions and visiting companies. All of this now needs to be filtered and our brains reformatted so that we can coherently create a report of everything that happened.
However, in the meantime, I'm slowly siphoning off images from the week. I wanted to capture movement and energy from the festival, and feel like this first set does a reasonably adequate job. It was a workshop run by Wordsmiths - a participating company from Trinidad and Tobago - and they got everybody moving with sticks.
(There's a lot more to come, but this will be a slow and steady process!)
Just a teeny tiny heads up - our site is currently on tenterhooks awaiting a few changes and overhauls to be made (it's starting to look a bit dusty after all.. :) and along with that, a few changes to the structure of Frilly itself... which will be revealed in time! As we're still just a two-girl front, these things take time and have to be juggled amongst other jobs, but we're getting there.
Exciting news to be told includes:
- public art developments
- our first arts & health resource nearing completion
- organisational developments
- ambitions ambitions ambitions
- a forked prong approach to the future!
..and so that this isn't just text, I'll finish this brief update with a random photo of a donkey called Pascoe who we were lucky enough to meet in Sutton Park at the Elizabeth Svendsen Trust - he was born in *1979* and is amazing! I love organisations that do amazing things, like these guys do. :)
