Ringing the changes today - last day for Gary & Sarah, so some Tate & Hepworth inspiration before a final day's working & performing in the spaces. We explored Sarah's shoaling focus (see her earlier blog below), allowing Gary, Rachel & Sarah to move around the space. We also had Clare working live with ink & paper with the musicians using this as stimulus for sound-making (a video of this will follow soon), & finally a real treat - poet Evelyn Holloway, who we'd met a couple of days earlier at Frug, came to the performance, & made 2 poems while we performed, & then read these to further musical interpretation from us - the poems appear as the last 2 photos below.
& to round off the day, singer & composer extraordinaire Nina Whiteman has now arrived, ready to thread her own unique collaborative talents through the traces Sarah & Gary have left. Goodbye week 1, hello week 2!
