This is a 3 minute video of my major project, Anthems and Angels
It is concerned with the memories and experiences of refugees.
Its process matches my intention to pay respect to what often gets censored or ignored (memories, sights, sounds, smells, kinetic sensations).
If everything is potentially of equal value, then sound, space, bodies, are already as important as any word or action. My training process he training works hard to allow performers to perceive what is there to help them (the substance of space, the walls singing), but also what needs to be listened to (knowledge in the wind, songs in the blood, history in the floorboards).
I am lucky to be working with several extraordinary collaborators, Timothy Constable (performer/musician) and Mike Chin (composer/film-maker, Tokyo Love-In) amongst them.
Watch this space!
