So earlier this year I, along with nearly 100 different artists in Manchester applied for a Jerwood Fellowship with Manchester International Festival 2017 and can happily say that I got it!!
You can read all about it on the link below! And I do feel a huge sense of achievement! I’m excited that I am working with award-winning company Theatre-Rites, which is a field leader in the creation of experimental theatre for children.
Acclaimed nationally and internationally, their touring productions and site responsive works stir the imagination and stimulate thought. They specifically promote understanding and enjoyment of ‘object-led’ theatre, celebrating the power of visuals, puppetry and animation by working in genuine collaboration with designers, visual artists, film-makers, puppeteers, musicians, composers, actors and dancers.
Co-commissioned by Manchester International Festival, Theatre-Rites, Z-Arts and the Ruhrtriennale Festival, the premiere of the site-specific production THE WELCOMING PARTY for the 2017 Manchester International Festival will be exploring how we welcome new arrivals and the stories they have to tell. But that’s another blog post! Read about my fellowship and the amazing cohort on this link below! X
