BLAENAVON- In collaboration w/ Cadw
We’re currently working on a large-scale outdoor spectacle piece in collaboration with CADW. Working out of the Blaenavon Ironworks, we’re looking to connect with a town and ask it to define its own potential and future by reimagining what they know about the space and place within which they live.
During our R&D we worked at the Blaenavon Ironworks site, building and creating a physical story to tell whilst also working and talking with local residents who live in the town. Through doing this we suddenly discovered this link, or at least an idea that links with what it is we’re hoping to say with peice and suddenly there’s something there. In a town, filled with unesco heritage sites that is regularly visited by film and television companies wanting to film there, it feels like its constantly asked to focus the past, so with this work we want to ingrain ourselves in the town and ask them to make bold plans for the future.
We’re currently looking for creative and financial collaboration on this project, so if you’re interested in working with us on this then please get in touch.
BIG SKIES 2020
TREDegar House Newport
This years Big Skies Festival will be held at Tredegar Park in Newport.
After two years of successful events working with communities, artists and nature organisations we are currently preparing ourselves for the third and final BIG SKIES.
In our first year we inhabited the Wetlands in Newport.
For our second instalment we roamed Caldicot Castle.
Now we're looking to take over the grounds of Tredegar House for a one day, mid summer, and create an event that will live long in the memory.
Dates are TBC.
We're currently looking for people who might want to get involved.
If you are a community group who lives, meets, works on the Gwent Levels, or are an individual with an interest in working with us to celebrate this unique landscape then please get in touch.
