An excerpt from our Colchester Arts Centre commission, Near Gone, won the inaugural Suitcase Prize on 31 May, as part of Pulse Ipswich in Ipswich. We are really excited to have won against such strong competition!
We really enjoyed all of the work at our FLINTsparks event on 24 May, which was shortlisted for the FLINTwalls commissions this September. Thank you to everyone who came to take part as artist or audience member!
The works chosen for commission, and which we’ll be featuring in a FLINT event once they’re complete, are 70/30 Split’s Two Do: A Performance and Haranczak/Navarre’s Control Signal. We’re really looking forward to having them in Winchester with us, and are very grateful to the University of Winchester for their support on the FLINT project.
We’ve been up in Chester with Storyville (lovely review plus an appearance on Sky News) where we enjoyed meeting hundreds of people and sharing the history of our belongings as part of an investigation into value and the ways in which objects are valued – and priced!
We’ve also been working on our new piece, Near Gone, along with the Incredible Charlotte Vincent, the coolest sound man ever -Tim Blazdell – and the very wonderful Sheila Ghelani and we are pleased with the results. The work is not entirely finished yet, we need to push a little more but we are so nearly there and shared some of the results at Brighton Dome’s The Works on April 9th, with great feedback from the audience! Below you can see a rehearsal image taken by the award-winning Alma Haser!
Our current shows are:
We are currently commissioned to create Near Gone, which will open in Colchester in October 2013 and is touring in Autumn 2013 and Spring 2014.
Near Gone won the Pulse Fringe Suitcase Prize 2013.
