Platform artists in residence Lucy Beech and Edward Thomasson will work with a group of performers to explore the notion that a problem shared is a problem solved. Together they will develop a new work that looks at how movement is used when language fails, or seems hard to summon. The development of the work will be presented in the gallery as a game-like process of learning and repeating. The residency will culminate in a series of final performances on the following dates:
Friday 5 February, 6.30pm
Saturday 6 February, 1pm
Saturday 6 February, 6.30pm
In addition to the final events, the there will be a week-by-week schedule of performances where the actors will present the work in progress. We will share details of when and how to book in the coming weeks.
Platform is a nationally unique artistic development programme, which gives our galleries over to an artist, or group of artists, to make new work in public. Come explore how ideas are born, nurtured and developed into new work. The gallery will be open as usual Tuesday – Saturday 11am – 5.30pm.
