Arty Party Performers, Jonathan White, Graham Busby, Samuel Rogers and Nathan Campbell put on an excellent performance at the Theatre Severn on Wednesday 22nd of September. Fedora, an exciting physical theatre piece, was performed in front of over 200 people as part of the Spice of Life showcase. Hopefully the performance can be repeated soon in Telford so that more Arty Party members get a chance to watch this great piece of theatre. Arty Party would like to thank the organisers of Spice of Life for giving us such a good performance platform and for commissioning the new piece.
Our first two sessions have gone really well. We are now a group of seven performers with three more to join soon. We have been spending time improvising, making movements, sounds, and stories up as we go along. We have been learning simple movements exercises using eastern dance forms such as Taiji Qigong and Butoh.
Yesterday we worked with ideas about simple things transforming and changing; a feather became a candle, a parrot, a fan, a toothbrush, sheeps wool, a gun, a sparkler,a nose tickler, even a cow ! The performers worked with these incredible changes that happened to the feather in their hands as they walked slowly across the studio floor.
